PurposeTo build a questionnaire to assess health-related quality of life (HRQL) in patients suffering from slowly progressive neuromuscular disease (NMD) using item response theory (IRT).MethodsA pool of 64 items and a validated questionnaire (WHOQOL-BREF) were administered to 159 patients recruited in eight NMD referral centers. Exploratory statistical analysis included methods derived from both IRT and classical test theory.ResultsWe constructed a questionnaire named QoL–NMD which is composed… Expand
Exploring quality of life in people with slowly-progressive neuromuscular disease
TLDR
This qualitative work was the first phase of a more ambitious project to develop a new NMD-specific HRQL questionnaire to identify and quantify the aspects of life that are altered by NMD according to patients. Expand
Producing a preference-based quality of life measure for people with Duchenne muscular dystrophy: a mixed-methods study protocol
TLDR
The primary output of this research will be a condition-specific PBM (or ‘bolt-on’ to an existing generic PBM) in people with DMD and an associated value set. Expand
Instruments for the Assessment of Behavioral and Psychosocial Functioning in Duchenne and Becker Muscular Dystrophy; a Systematic Review of the Literature.
OBJECTIVE This systematic review aims to provide an overview of instruments used to assess behavioral and psychosocial functioning of patients with Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy, as well asExpand
A review of quality of life themes in Duchenne muscular dystrophy for patients and carers
TLDR
The rich variety of themes identified from the review highlights that DMD has a complexquality of life profile which is not currently captured by standard quality of life tools that are commonly employed in the healthcare setting. Expand
The quality of life in genetic neuromuscular disease questionnaire: Rasch validation of the French version
TLDR
The purpose of the present study was to validate the French version of the QoL‐gNMD and to calibrate its measurement system. Expand
A systematic review of dimensions evaluating patient experience in chronic illness
TLDR
A large PRM diversity exists and none of the reviewed and selected questionnaires covered all identified categories of dimensions of patient experience of chronic disease, so an overview of some of the dimensions used to explore chronic patient experience is provided. Expand
A critical review of patient and parent caregiver oriented tools to assess health-related quality of life, activity of daily living and caregiver burden in spinal muscular atrophy
TLDR
A critical review of the tools previously or currently used to measure quality of life, activity of daily living, and caregiver burden in SMA provides a roadmap of the different tools indicating their suitability for different SMA types or age groups. Expand
Effects of gait training with a voluntary-driven wearable cyborg, Hybrid Assistive Limb (HAL), on quality of life in patients with neuromuscular disease, able to walk independently with aids
TLDR
It is suggested that HAL-assisted gait training is effective in improving QOL associated with mental health as well as gait ability in selected patients with NMDs. Expand
Rehabilitation Management of the Patient With Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
TLDR
Advances and expansion in assessment, cardiorespiratory management, preventive management of contracture and deformity, assistive technology, “smart” technology, and robotics with increased emphasis on function should allow individuals with DMD to experience childhood and transition to adulthood with support that allows for increasing success in the achievement of individual goals and fulfillment across the life span. Expand
A team approach in the diagnosis and management of facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy: a case report
TLDR
It was found that muscle strength decreased by approximately 1%-4% per year with a 20% overall lifetime risk of becoming wheelchair dependent, and this has been closely evaluated via a large natural history prospective trial by the FSH-DY group. Expand

Construction and validation of a quality of life questionnaire for neuromuscular disease (INQoL)
TLDR
The Individualized Neuromuscular Quality of Life is a validated muscle disease specific measure of quality of life developed from the experiences of patients with muscle disease and can be used for individuals or large samples. Expand
Health related quality of life in people with hereditary neuromuscular diseases: An investigation of test–retest agreement with comparison between two generic questionnaires, the Nottingham health profile and the short form-36 items
The present work attempts to define reproducibility, test-retest and internal consistencies of two standardised tools that measure health related quality of life (HRQoL), specifically as they applyExpand
Assessment of pain and health-related quality of life in slowly progressive neuromuscular disease
TLDR
The results indicated that, with the exception of adult SMA, the frequency and severity of pain reported in slowly progressive NMDs was significant and was comparable to pain reported by subjects with osteoarthritis and chronic low back pain. Expand
Hereditary neuromuscular disease and multicomposite subjective health status: feasibility, internal consistency and test-retest reliability in the French version of the Nottingham Health Profile, the ISPN
TLDR
Some items in the pain and physical mobility subscales pose problems related to the relevance of the wording for patients confined to wheelchairs, and recoding of the measure makes it possible to avoid missing data from these dependent patients. Expand
The World Health Organization's WHOQOL-BREF quality of life assessment: Psychometric properties and results of the international field trial. A Report from the WHOQOL Group
TLDR
Overall, the WHOQOL-BREF is a sound, cross-culturally valid assessment of QOL, as reflected by its four domains: physical, psychological, social and environment. Expand
Validation of the ICF core set for neuromuscular diseases.
TLDR
The NMD Core Set can contribute to a better understanding of the consequences of NMDs and can serve as a basis for clinical practice, research, social security systems, and educational programs. Expand
The Importance of Assessing Quality of Life in Patients with Neuromuscular Disorders
TLDR
Although 2 patients with the same hereditary peripheral neuropathy may have similar ratings of pain and mobility, they may report markedly different role functions and this information is only of interest to the authors' patients to the extent that these biomedical factors influence their functional status and emotional well-being. Expand
Activities of daily living and quality of life in persons with muscular dystrophy.
TLDR
The results indicated that over half of the subjects were dependent on others, chiefly in activities requiring mobility, and Muscular dystrophy had mostly negative consequences, and nearly half stated that life would have offered more without it. Expand
Universal Health Outcome Measures for Older Persons with Multiple Chronic Conditions
TLDR
Routine outcome assessment of individuals with MCCs could facilitate system‐based care improvement and clinical effectiveness research. Expand
The Barthel ADL Index: a reliability study.
TLDR
Analysis of total (summed) scores revealed a close correlation between all four methods: a difference of 4/20 points was likely to reflect a genuine difference, and in individual items, most disagreement was minor and involved the definition of middle grades. Expand
