HBSC Network publishes: Health-Related Quality of Life in Portuguese Children and Adolescents

The KIDSCREEN is a European cross-cultural and standardized instrument that assesses ten quality of life dimensions in children, adolescents and their parents. This instrument is used to validate evidences to support general inferences on quality-of-life measures obtained by the Portuguese version of KIDSCREEN-10 for children and adolescents, in the context of a survey research carried on in Portugal. The Portuguese version of KIDSCREEN-10 instrument showed a good Internal Consistency. Results indicated that the current 10-item structure is invariant across age groups, nationality and socio-economic level. The KIDSCREEN-10 questionnaire is a reliable instrument to estimate the perception of quality of life. Psychometric guidelines are presented for the Portuguese population aged 10 to 16 years old.
