Item Development

The results of the focus groups were used to derive items for the generic and condition specific modules. Altogether 3027 statements were formulated as a result of the focus group work. The statements underwent a reduction process involving a redundancy rating performed by three centres, a card sort procedure. Finally, 119 chronic generic and 12-22 disease-specific items for each module were selected to form the draft questionnaire of the pilot test.
