Development and Evaluation of the Pediatric Diabetes Routines Questionnaire
This study describes the development of the Pediatric Diabetes Routines Questionnaire (PDRQ), a parent-report measure of diabetes-specific routines in youth with diabetes. Participants were 198 parents of youth with type 1 diabetes ages 5 through 17. The PDRQ and measures of general child routines, family rituals, diabetes treatment adherence, and diabetes-specific family behaviors were administered. Principal components analysis revealed two components, daily regimen routines and technical/situational routines, which sum to form a total score. The PDRQ has strong initial psychometric properties, including good internal consistency, test-retest reliability, and validity coefficients. Overall, promising results for the PDRQ are reported.
