The IMPACT questionnaire was developed in Canada to measure quality of life in children with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). In the present study, 20 children with IBD completed 2 versions of the IMPACT questionnaire with a Likert scale or visual analog scale (VAS), 5 of whom expressed problems with language or phrasing. Difficult words included "restrictions," "moderate," "diarrhea," "school break," and the abbreviation "IBD." Fifteen children preferred the Likert scale to the VAS (chi = 20, P < 0.01). Rewording the difficult words and using a Likert scale should facilitate completion of the IMPACT questionnaire in the United Kingdom. Further validation is needed to ensure that the instrument is reliable and valid.
