Abstract:
A disease-specific HRQL measure is essential to evaluate the impact of interventions on the HRQL of teenagers with FHS, who are coping with increasing responsibility for their FHS. However, there is no such measure for teenagers with FHS living in the UK. Hence, the aims of this research were to (i) describe the personal experiences of teenagers with FHS (ii) develop a disease-specific HRQL measure for this group and (iii) evaluate the reliability and validity of the HRQL measure.
