    Identifying Items for the Child Amblyopia Treatment Questionnaire

    Purpose: Patient reported outcome (PRO) instruments are increasingly common in both clinical practice and research. The data obtained from these instruments can be used to help inform decision-making and policy-making decisions. The methodological approaches undertaken in developing PROs is not frequently reported. Literature on the development of the descriptive systems for PROs is sparse in comparison to the assessment of the psychometric properties of such instruments. The purpose of this study is to describe the methodological approach taken in identifying potential items for the Child Amblyopia Treatment Questionnaire (CAT-QoL); a paediatric disease-specific health related quality of life instrument for amblyopia designed for children aged 4 to 7 years.
