QOLCE-55 Available for Download

The Quality of Life in Childhood Epilepsy Questionnaire (QOLCE-55) is an epilepsy-specific, parent-reported measure of health-related quality of life of children with epilepsy. Details of the QOLCE-55’s development are described in a 2015 paper by Goodwin et al. The QOLCE-55 is available at no cost for investigators and clinicians interested in using it in their research or clinical programs.
