Dr. Erin Michalak and Dr. Emma Morton Publish a Study Validating the Quality of Life in Bipolar Disorder (QoL.BD) Scale in French

 

Dr. Erin Michalak and Dr. Emma Morton have published a new study in the Canadian Journal of Psychiatry which validates the Quality of Life in Bipolar Disorder (QoL.BD) Scale in the French language.

The English-language version of the QoL.BD Scale was developed by Dr. Michalak and her team as the the first quality of life questionnaire specifically designed for people with bipolar disorder. The new study, led by Dr. Martin Provencher, validated the French version of the QoL.BD to be comparable to the English version in its psychometric properties, and represents as a viable and reliable measure of QoL in French-speaking patients with BD in both clinical and research settings.
