Term Description

This panel contains the set of LOINCs used in the self-administered Medical Outcomes Study (MOS) Social Support Survey instrument. The MOS was a two-year study of patients with chronic conditions. The instrument used in the study includes four separate social support subscales (emotional/informational, tangible, affectionate, and positive social interaction) and an overall functional social support index. Higher scores on an individual scale or for the overall support index suggest that more support is available. PMID: 2035047[RAND: mos/social-support]
