MINI ASTHMA QUALITY OF LIFE QUESTIONNAIRE (Mini AQLQ)
Although the AQLQ(S) has been highly successful and used in a large number of clinical studies around the world, it takes 4-5 minutes to complete. In response to a demand for a shorter, quicker version for large clinical trials and for managed care monitoring, we have developed and fully validated the MiniAQLQ. This instrument has 15 questions in the same domains as the original AQLQ (symptoms, activities, emotions and environment) and takes 3-4 minutes to complete. The MiniAQLQ has very good reliability, cross-sectional validity, responsiveness and longitudinal validity. However, as might be expected with a shorter questionnaire, none of these properties are quite so good as those of the original AQLQ and the AQLQ(S). Like the AQLQ and the AQLQ(S), a change in score of greater than 0.5 can be considered clinically important.
