Sažetak
Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQOL) studies concerning children are growing field of research. The Paediatric Quality of Life Inventory (PedsQLTM) is HRQOL instrument with the availability of age appropriate versions and parallel forms for both children and parent’s. The aim of this study was to evaluate the quality of life (QoL) in a sample of healthy preschool children’s (5-6 years old) in eastern Croatia. The PedsQLTM generic core scales was completed by 76 healthy preschool children’s and their parent’s as a proxy-report. The data was descriptively analysed first. Reliability was assessed by Cronbach’s alpha. The statistically significant difference and correlations between the four PedsQLTM scales (physical, emotional, social and school functioning) for preschool children’s and their parent’s proxy-report were analysed. The PedsQLTM scale score means for children’s self-report ranged 71.30-76.50, with the total score was 74.53. For their parent’s proxy-report scale score means ranged 73.59-85.46, with the total score was 80.93. All the self-report and proxy-report scales showed satisfactory reliability with Cronbach’s alpha varying between 0.71 and 0.89 except the school (0.51) and social functioning (0.58) for self-report. Statistically significant difference between scales in self-report and proxy-report was for physical (t=-3.18, p<0.01) and social functioning (t=-2.85, p<0.01) as well as psychosocial (t=-3.39, p<0.01) and total health (t=-3.04, p<0.01). Finally, the social functioning self-report and emotional functioning proxy-report as well as school functioning self-report and emotional, school and social functioning proxy-report showed correlations. The Croatian PedsQLTM is valid and reliable generic paediatric HRQOL measurement that can be recommended for self-reports and proxy-reports for children in age groups ranging from 5-6 years.
