Quality of Life

The American Academy of Maxillofacial Prosthetics (AAMP) committee for Qualty of Life (QOL) developed the Oral Cancer Index (OCI) between 2000 and 2006.

Working together the QOL committee developed a comprehensive questionaire of 133 questions. Item reduction was completed 3-23-2006. Validation of the questionnaire remains to be done.

The title of this instrument is AAMP-OCI and is composed of the Item Reduction to 42 questions. This is the only QOL instrument that includes Prosthesis questions.
