Cultural and linguistic validation of acne-QoL in French

, : Cultural and linguistic validation of acne-QoL in French. Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology 26(10): 1310-1314

Acne-Quality of Life (acne-QoL) is a facial acne-specific quality-of-life instrument developed in English.Our objective was to translate and validate acne-QoL in French and to establish the reliability and responsivity of this measure. Acne-QoL was translated into French (acne-QoLfr) in accordance with international methodological recommendations. The validated French version of the Cardiff Acne Disability Index (CADIfr) was used as a comparator. Acne patients in Quebec (n = 2) and France (n = 14) completed the acne-QoLfr and CADIfr on three occasions over 3 months (day , day 2 3, day 6 9). A total of 34 patients were recruited. Pearson s correlation for total acne-QoLfr scores at day and day 2 3 was .77. Of the four domains comprising the acne-QoLfr, correlations were highest for symptoms (.85) and lowest for the role-emotional domain (.66). At day 6 9, total acne-QoLfr scores increased by a mean of 19.7 points, reflecting improved quality-of-life with acne therapy and demonstrating responsivity of the instrument. Acne-QoLfr is a linguistically and culturally validated tool for facial acne that is both reliable and responsive.
