Toward assessing family outcomes of service delivery: validation of a family quality of life survey

Toward assessing family outcomes of service delivery: validation of a family quality of life survey Background The concept of family quality of life (QoL) has emerged as an important outcome of service delivery for individuals with disabilities and their families. The present study describes the process of developing a tool to measure family QoL. Methods and Results A total of 1197 respondents participated in a national field test. Through factor analysis, the survey was refined in several ways: (1) the preliminary 10‐domain structure was reduced to a five‐domain structure; (2) a total of 41 items were selected for the revised survey; and (3) wordings were clarified. Conclusions The implications for future research and practice are discussed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Intellectual Disability Research Wiley

Abstract

Background The concept of family quality of life (QoL) has emerged as an important outcome of service delivery for individuals with disabilities and their families. The present study describes the process of developing a tool to measure family QoL. Methods and Results A total of 1197 respondents participated in a national field test. Through factor analysis, the survey was refined in several ways: (1) the preliminary 10‐domain structure was reduced to a five‐domain structure; (2) a total of 41 items were selected for the revised survey; and (3) wordings were clarified. Conclusions The implications for future research and practice are discussed.
