A small little book one the Sage Series that we enjoy so much. For a new person that wants to understand the basic theory behind, Validity and Reliability, the Carmine and Zeller book is a little jewel, that have stood the test of time.

I knew of its existance and a few weeks ago purchased it. It is worth the money we paid. Juan A Aguirre Cited by:   Quality of life (QOL) measures have become a vital and often required part of health outcomes appraisal. For populations with chronic disease, measurement of QOL provides a meaningful way to determine the impact of health care when cure is not by:   This study aims to adapt the Lymphedema Quality of Life Questionnaire-leg (LYMQOL-Leg) to Turkish and to test its reliability and validity in patients with LLL.

Methods and Results: The Turkish-LYMQOL-Leg was obtained using forward–backward translation and administered to patients with LLL, along with Short Form 36 (SF), and Lower Cited by: 1. Temporal reliability also was supported by test-retest correlations with a two-week interval for all five scores: overall quality of life (r), health and functioning (r), social and economic (r), psychological/spiritual (r), and family (r) (Dougherty et al., ).

Validity Content Validity. Quality of life (QoL) has been described by the World Health Organisation as “a broad ranging concept affected in a complex way by the person’s physical health, psychological state, level of independence, social relationships, personal beliefs and their relationship to salient features of their environment [1]”.Cited by: Following a chapter on objectivity, the authors discuss the role of reliability and validity and the problems that arise when these issues are neglected.

They present a paradigm for the qualitative research process that makes it possible to pursue validity without neglecting reliability. Validity refers to how accurately a method measures what it is intended to measure. If research has high validity, that means it produces results that correspond to real properties, characteristics, and variations in the physical or social world.

High reliability is one indicator that a measurement is valid. We examined convergent validity by correlating the PAM levels with quality of life measures, specifically, the Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) Global Health short form scores.

We conjectured that participants with higher activation levels would also have higher mental and physical quality of life by:   Objective.

Reliability refers to the extent to which the same answers can be obtained using the same instruments more than one time. In simple terms, if your research is associated with high levels of reliability, then other researchers need to be able to generate the same results, using the same.
