Medical Research Council Questionnaire
A medical research council questionnaire is a document which is created and composed by the Medical Research Council in the United Kingdom seeking to underline and extricate information about respiratory distress experienced by people. The forms are provided to specific patients, generally periodically, and they are requested to fill in the form. The answers provided to the specific and incisive questions in the Medical Research Council Questionnaire are such that they enable medical practitioners to make a primary diagnosis. Such a questionnaire should be designed according to the predesigned layout provided by the MRC.
