Haemophilia Activities List (HAL and PedHAL)
Haemophilia Activities List (HAL and PedHAL)
The Hemophilia Activities List (HAL) and Pediatric Hemophilia Activities List (PedHAL) are self-reported questionnaires about limitations in activities and participation for patients with haemophilia.
HAL (18 years and older)
The HAL contains 42 items across 7 domains: lying down/sitting/kneeling/standing, functions of the legs, functions of the arms, use of transportation, self-care, household tasks and leisure activities and sports. Items are scored on a 6-point Likert scale (‘impossible’, ‘always’, ‘usually’, ‘sometimes’, ‘almost never’, ‘never’), with a ‘not applicable’ option for some items. A summary score as well as component scores (upper extremity, basic lower extremity and complex lower extremity) can be calculated. The scores are converted to a normalized score from 0 to 100, where higher scores represent a better functional status. Click here for the HAL questionnaire.
PedHAL (4 to 18 years)
The PedHAL contains 53 items across 7 domains: sitting/kneeling/standing, functions of the legs, functions of the arms, use of transportation, self-care, household tasks and leisure activities and sports. It consists of a patient version (8-18 years) and parent version (4-18 years). Items are scored on a 6-point Likert scale (‘impossible’, ‘always’, ‘usually’, ‘sometimes’, ‘almost never’, ‘never’), with a ‘not applicable (N/A)’ scoring option for all items. A summary score as well as domain scores can be calculated. The scores are converted to a normalized score from 0 to 100, where higher scores represent a better functional status.
