MEQ - Morningness-Eveningness Questionnaire
The Morningness-Eveningness Questionnaire (MEQ) is a 19-item, self-administered instrument designed to measure whether a person's peak sleepiness/alertness is in the morning/evening. It has been measured and validated against circadian rhythm variations in oral temperature, with peak alertness time correlated with higher body temperatures.
Once the patient has submitted it, you may preview it on the uninitialed documents tab in the EMR. However, do not initial it or it won't later be pulled into your Mobile Note.
16-30 = Definite evening type
31-41 = Moderate evening type
42-58 = Intermediate type
59-69 = Moderate morning type
70-86 = Definite morning type
