Coeliac disease assessment questionnaire (CDAQ); a patient reported outcome measure

Principal Investigator: Dr Helen Crocker

Institution: Health Services Research Unit, Nuffield Department of Population Health, University of Oxford

Research classification: Management of disease

Project start & duration: June 2015 (12 months)

Grant awarded: £20k

Researchers at the University of Oxford have developed a coeliac disease assessment questionnaire (CDAQ). The CDAQ is a new patient reported outcome measure (PROM). PROMs are considered to be increasingly important in research and clinical practice to assess the impact of treatments and/or healthcare provision.

The primary aim of this project is to further validate the newly developed CDAQ. This will include testing its sensitivity to change by developing a scoring system to meaningfully interpret data collected over a period of time – such as assessing the effect of a gluten-free diet in newly diagnosed patients or assessing the effectiveness of new treatments in clinical trials.
