AbstractSocial work assessment can be better achieved with the aid of a standardized measuring instrument. This paper attempts to evaluate the reliability of an adapted measuring instrument. The reliability of four measures of adjustment, namely, the anxiety and depression sub-scales of SCL-90, social maladjustment to illness, patients' perceived health status, are evaluated. The participants who participated in this study were cancer patients suffering from neoplasm of the nasopharynx. The implications of this study for the oncology social work practice are then discussed.
