Cross Cultural Validation of Quality of Life Measure for Lupus

Current patient-reported instruments used to monitor disease activity and quality of life are not adequate for a disease that is as complex and variable as lupus. LupusPRO is a tool developed specifically for people with lupus to measure changes in their quality of life and disease activity. This study presented during the 2011 American College of Rheumatology Annual Scientific Meeting validated the Spanish-translated version of the tool. In this podcast, Dr. Meenakshi Jolly, of Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, discusses the results.
