Un nouvel instrument destiné à mesurer la qualité de vie des personnes âgées : le WHOQOL-OLD version française

Abstract : Purpose We present the validation data of the French version of a new quality of life questionnaire, specifically developed for use with older adults (> 60 years old): the WHOQOL-OLD module. This questionnaire, which contains 24 items in six domains, is a complementary module of the WHOQOL-BREF quality of life questionnaire. It was internationally developed by a World Health Organization (WHO) group. Methods The first development and pilot studies led to a first questionnaire applied in field studies in 20 centers all over the world. They were done in 5566 subjects and allowed the validation of the final form of the WHOQOL-OLD questionnaire. For its French version, 281 subjects, with a mean age of 74 years, were recruited in three centers (Paris, Nancy and Geneva). Results The results of the psychometric properties of the questionnaire, particularly the multitrait analysis, are compatible with the assumptions underlying the construction of scores. Otherwise, scores present a sufficient accuracy to use this instrument in group comparisons. Conclusion The WHOQOL-OLD questionnaire can be used in older people in health services, clinical research and epidemiologic studies.
