Validation of a Self-Reported Questionnaire for Neuropsychiatric Lupus Events
From our latest research e-newsletter
The incidence of neuropsychiatric disease in people with lupus varies widely, from 21% to 95%, depending on the stringency of the criteria used. Regardless, it is recognized that the occurrence of neuropsychiatric disease is associated with reduced self-reported quality of life in people with lupus. The use of standardized measures of health-related quality of life associated with neuropsychiatric events in people with lupus has not yet been validated. The investigators sought to examine changes in health-related quality of life associated with clinical outcomes of neuropsychiatric events in people with lupus over the course of one year.
