    The Rheumatoid Arthritis Quality of Life Questionnaire (RAQoL) is a disease specific patient-reported outcome measure which determines the effect rheumatoid arthritis has on a patient’s quality of life. The RAQoL has 30 items with a yes and no response format and takes about six minutes to complete.. Scores on the RAQoL are a sum of all the individual item scores with a Purpose: determine quality of life with Rheumatoid Arthritis.
