Abstract

The purpose of this study was to develop and evaluate the psychometric characteristics of a new specific tool for the assessment of HRQoL in schoolchildren aged 6–11 years with respiratory allergy, starting from the idea underpinning the RHINASTHMA. The new questionnaire considers asthma and rhinitis as two clinical manifestations of the same disease, to globally evaluate the impact of respiratory allergy. This tool was intended to be (i) able to capture HRQoL in children with allergic rhinitis and/or asthma, (ii) generated and tested in accordance with procedures applied to HRQoL instruments, short, simple, and user-friendly, (iii) psychometrically sound with good validity and reliability, and (iv) easy to be completed by the patient himself. We have named this new questionnaire ‘RHINASTHMA-Children’.
