A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF QUESTIONNAIRES ASSESSING THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF CHILDREN WITH BRONCHIAL ASTHMA
Keywords:questionnaires, quality of life, children, bronchial asthma
Our aim was to present the Qol Quality of Life Assessment (Qol) tools which are currently used in clinical practice, their role and importance in the classification and management of asthma. We reviewed 6 questionnaires: 1) Child Health Survey for Asthma (CHSA) -Developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics; 2) Child Health Survey for Asthma-Child Version (CHSA-C) -Developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics; 3) Pediatric Asthma Quality of Life Questionnaire (PAQLQ) - Developed by E.F. Juniper; 4) Pediatric Asthma Caregiver Quality of Life Questionnaire (PACQLQ) - Developed by E.F. Juniper; 5) Pictorial Quality of Life Measure for Young Children With Asthma (Pictorial PAQLQ) -Developed by R.S. Everhart and B.H. Fiese; 6) Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory 3.0 Asthma Module (of the Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory) (Developed by J.W. Varni). Assessing health-related quality of life (HRQOL) can provide a significant and more comprehensive assessment of the impact of asthma on a child's quality of life. Its (QoL) study and correct evaluation can be very useful for the proper management and prognosis of asthma. The impact of asthma on quality of life is different in different countries, which is determined by the cultural, social, psychosomatic, nutritional characteristics of the nation, therefore, validation of the instruments for assessing the quality of life of children with asthma in Georgia is necessary and important.
