Abstract

The Fantastic lifestyle assessment questionnaire was designed to help healthcare physicians measure their patients' life-styles.

It was found that the 25 items, and those grouped into 10 domains exceeded the proposed reliability standard (Cronbach α), being greater than 0.50 and 0.73, respectively. Inter-scalar correlation was good and acceptable in various categories of the Fantastic questionnaire (total cf domains), (r=0.19 to 0.79; p
