It is recognised that urogynaecological symptoms can have a significant impact on patient quality of life (QoL). Many of the QoL questionnaires are long and provide a burden to patients. The aim of this study was to compare patients’ responses to utilising equivalent QoL questionnaires in different formats. The electronic personal assessment questionnaire, ePAQ‐PF, was compared to the paper‐based Queensland questionnaire. ePAQ‐PF appeared to be of greater value but not more burdensome. However, women were more likely to complete the sexual function section using the Queensland questionnaire.
