Evaluating JIA Assessment Instruments (1 of 3)

For this review, seven individual outcomes instruments that are used in composite assessments were evaluated. They measure:

  • Disease activity, using Active Joint Count (AJC), physician global assessment of disease activity (PGA), or parent global assessment of well-being (PGW)
  • Functional status and disability, using the Childhood Health Assessment Questionnaire (CHAQ)
  • Health-related quality of life, using the Child Health Questionnaire (CHQ), the Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory (PedsQL), and the Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory–Rheumatology Module (PedsQL-RM)
