1. The oropharyngeal mucositis–specific quality-of-life measure (OMQoL) is the first patient-reported measure specific for oropharyngeal mucositis (OM) and has good reliability and validity. It may be useful for assessing the overall impact of OM from the perspective of patients.
2. The OMQoL may provide a common platform for clinicians to assess, care for, and treat patients with OM.
