Health-related quality of life lost to rotavirus-associated gastroenteritis in children and their parents: a Canadian prospective study.

Abstract

We estimated the impact of rotavirus-associated gastroenteritis (RGE) on health-related quality of life of children and parents as background for economic evaluation of rotavirus vaccines. A total of 186 new cases of RGE in children <36 months old were recruited from physician and pediatric clinics and followed up for 2 weeks. Our results show that RGE impacts the health-related quality of life of children and parents adversely.
