Questionnaire methods

These offer the respondent a preset range of written questions covering the area of clinical interest. The questions may be completed either by ticking one of a set of provided response categories ('forced-choice' questionnaires), or by writing the patient's own response in free text. 'Self-report' and 'self-monitoring' methods are similar to the latter form of questionnaire, in that the patient is provided with, and completes, a diary or premarked sheets. However, these tend to be more open-ended, and any associated thoughts of the patient may be included. Self-report measures are often used clinically in cognitive-behavioural interventions.
