New parental assessment tool for Health-Related Quality of Life in preschoolers

preescolarAlthough there are different measures to evaluate the overall HRQoL in children, parental reports are required to supplement this information, especially in very young children. The parent version of Kiddy-KINDL-R was developed to assess HRQoL in children aged 3 to 7 years through the reports of their parents or legal guardians. The aim of this study was to validate the parent version of the Kiddy-KINDL-R questionnaire and assess its psychometric properties in a sample of Spanish preschool-aged children. The results showed excellent reliability and discriminant validity with a measure of anxiety. The Spanish version of Kiddy-KINDL-R demonstrated good psychometric properties and is also a suitable and useful assessment tool in clinical practice. You can consult the study here.
