New Crohn’s measure

The Crohn’s Life Impact Questionnaire (CLIQ) is the first scientifically rigorous Patient-Reported Outcome Measure (PROM) specific to Crohn’s Disease. It consists of two unidimensional scales with good scaling and psychometric properties: QoL (27 items) and activity limitations (9 items). CLIQ is well accepted by patients, easy to use and should prove valuable for assessing Crohn’s-related activity limitations and QoL in clinical practice, audit and trials.
