BACKGROUND: Childhood disabilities determine a range of immediate and long-term economic costs that have important implications for the well-being of the child, the family and the society. The Pediatric Evaluation of Disability Inventory (PEDI) measures capability and performance in children aged between 6 months and 7.5 years. It contains three scales: Functional Skills Scales (FSS), Caregiver Assistance Scale (CAS) and Modifications Scale (MS). The present study evaluated the measurement properties of the Italian version of the PEDI (PEDI-I) in patients with spastic cerebral palsy (CP)...

Patient-reported outcomes (PROs) have become an important subject in the area of diabetes-related foot complications. Self-reported health-related quality of life (HRQOL) surveys can provide a generic measure of overall health (global) and can be disease specific (i.e., diabetes) or even region specific (i.e., lower-extremity function). Analysis of PRO measures utilizing validated instruments allows health care providers to determine whether medical and surgical treatments are providing patients with the highest level of outcome possible and are actually improving HRQOL...

INTRODUCTION: Although the antidepressant efficacy of ECT is well documented, patient-reported outcomes after this treatment are less well characterized. The aims of the current meta-analysis are to quantify the impact of an acute course of ECT on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and to identify related moderators, specifically post-ECT depressive symptom remission and patient age. METHODS: We searched PubMed, PsycINFO, and Web of Science databases for randomized and nonrandomized studies that report on changes in HRQoL measures after an acute course of ECT...
