Purpose null The association between long-term BMI changes since childhood and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in adulthood is still unclear. This study aimed to examine the association between identified BMI trajectories and HRQoL. null Methods null A population-based cohort of 1938 eligible children (3-18 years) and their parents have been repeatedly followed up for 18 years. Offspring BMI trajectories were identified using group-based trajectory models. HRQoL was evaluated in offspring...

To systematically review studies on the relationship between physical activity (PA) and quality of life (QOL) in university students without comorbidities for cardiometabolic diseases from around the world. We included observational studies with university students of both sexes, from public or private institutions, and that investigated the association or correlation between physical activity and quality of life among these students, without delimitation of date, language, or location. Reviews,...

PURPOSE To assess score agreement between the Atroshi-Lyren 6-item symptoms scale and the Boston 11-item symptom severity scale and compare their responsiveness in patients with carpal tunnel syndrome before and after carpal tunnel release surgery. METHODS This prospective cohort study included 3 cohorts that completed the A-L and Boston scales (conventional score 1-5) on the same occasion: a preoperative and short-term postoperative cohort (212 patients), a mid-term postoperative cohort (101 pa...

Purpose null This study aimed to determine how limited medication knowledge as one aspect of health literacy contributes to poorer health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in people with Parkinson's disease (PD). null Methods null Demographical data, PD-specific data (MDS-Unified Parkinson's Disease-Rating Scale, Nonmotor symptom scale), and data about depressive symptoms (Beck's depression inventory), cognition (Montreal cognitive assessment), HRQoL (Short-Form Health Questionnaire-36, SF-36), an...

Although multiple imputation is the state-of-the-art method for managing missing data, mixed models without multiple imputation may be equally valid for longitudinal data. Additionally, it is not clear whether missing values in multi-item instruments should be imputed at item or score-level. We therefore explored the differences in analyzing the scores of a health-related quality of life questionnaire (EQ-5D-5L) using four approaches in two empirical datasets. We used simulated (GR dataset) and ...

To investigate patient-reported outcome (PRO) measures in patients with relapsing–remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) who transition to secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS). Subjects enrolled in the Comprehensive Longitudinal Investigation of Multiple Sclerosis at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (CLIMB) who completed PRO measures in the RRMS and SPMS phases were identified (n = 52). The PRO measures were Medical Outcomes Study Short-Form 36 Health Survey (SF-36), the Modified Fatigue Imp...

Fatigue is a common symptom in children and adolescents. Its negative impact on health outcomes is even more pronounced in those with chronic pain. There is currently no fatigue measurement tool in German that is validated for both children and adolescents with and without chronic pain. Therefore, this study aimed to gather quantitative validity evidence to support the use of the German version of the PROMIS® Pediatric Short Form v2.0 - Fatigue 10a (PROMIS® F-SF) in the German pediatric general ...

We introduce the special section on nonparametric item response theory (IRT) in Quality of Life Research. Starting from the well-known Rasch model, we provide a brief overview of nonparametric IRT models and discuss the assumptions, the properties, and the investigation of goodness of fit. We provide references to more detailed texts to help readers getting acquainted with nonparametric IRT models. In addition, we show how the rather diverse papers in the special section fit into the nonparametr...

To identify relationships between health-related quality of life (HRQOL) and nutritional status in hemodialysis (HD) patients. Secondary data from a cross-sectional survey was utilized. HRQOL was assessed for 379 HD patients using the generic Short Form 36 (SF-36) and disease-specific Kidney-Disease Quality of Life-36 (KDQOL-36). Malnutrition was indicated by malnutrition inflammation score (MIS) ≥ 5, and presence of protein-energy wasting (PEW). The individual nutritional parameters included th...
