Background/Aims: Measure Yourself Medical Outcome Profile 2 (MYMOP2) is a patient-generated outcome measure allowing patients to select the problems that are the most important to them and that they want to address, and it measures the effects of the problem from a wide range of health care interventions. This study aimed to translate the questionnaire into Turkish language (Turkish MYMOP-TMYMOP) and add this clinically useful measure to Turkish medical practice by assessing its validity and reliability.

 

Materials and Methods: Fifty volunteers with anorectal disorders were prospectively included into the study. Each patient was enrolled into a pelvic floor training biofeedback program, specific to their anorectal symptomatology. The subjects were administered both the Nottingham Health Profile and the TMYMOP2 questionnaires before the treatment session (initial visit) and at the control follow-up visits (the first and second months, via e-mail or telephone calls).
