A cough can be very distressing and have a significant effect on many children and their families.
The Child Cough-Specific Quality of Life (CC-QOL) is a 16-item questionnaire designed to measure the impact of cough on a child's own reported well-being and burden across multiple dimensions. The questionnaire is easy for children to complete and healthcare professionals to use as part of research and clinical practice. It purposefully uses a simple 7-point Likert-type scale. Higher scores reflect lower frequency and fewer worry concerns (thus greater QoL).
Not only is the questionnaire reliable and valid, but also sensitive to change over time. This means that it measures the impact of the child’s cough their own wellbeing and daily life while also mirroring the changes in the cough severity.
