Quality of life (QOL) is an important clinical and research focus in women with gynaecological cancer. This mini-review offers advice on selecting a measurement for QOL and highlights future directions in the field. Readers are encouraged to choose a valid and reliable questionnaire and to match questionnaire content and scale structure to the purpose, patients and clinical context at hand. In the future, computer-adaptive testing may enable more precise, less burdensome assessment while maintaining the ability to compare results between studies.
