Measuring Quality of Life in Children with Narcolepsy

Symptoms of childhood narcolepsy and the impact of the disease on a child’s quality of life (QOL) are often not recognized by healthcare professionals. As a result, many children with narcolepsy will not be diagnosed correctly until adulthood.

In the Q3 issue of A2Zzz, By Regina Patrick, RPSGT, RST, discusses the use of a specialized assessment tool (NarQoL=21) to provide accurate information on the impact of the disease in children.

Her article, “Measuring Quality of Life in Children with Narcolepsy” is one of four designated CEC articles in this issue of A2Zzz. AAST members who read A2Zzz and claim their credits online by the deadline can earn 2.00 AAST Continuing Education Credits (CECs) per issue – for up to 8.00 AAST CECs per year.
