Brief Summary:

Objectives:The aim of this study was to translate the Childhood Bladder and Bowel Dysfunction Questionnaire into Turkish, adapt it for use with parents of 5-12 year old children and determine the reliability and construct validity of the Turkish version. The main hypothesis of our study was that it would be possible to translate and culturally adapt the CBBDQ into a Turkish version, so that Turkish parents could understand it. Additionally, we hypothesized that the Turkish version would provide adequate internal consistency and test-rest reliability and acceptable construct validity.

Methods:The Childhood Bladder and Bowel Dysfunction Questionnaire was guideline driven translated into Turkish and administered twice, at 7-day intervals, to parents of children to assess test-retest reliability. Cronbach's α was used for internal consistency and the inter-rater correlation coefficient was used to calculate test-retest reliability. The Dysfunctional Voiding and Incontinence Scoring System (DVISS) and Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory (PedsQL) in 5-7, 8-12 years old children were used as an external criterion to estimate construct validity.

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
A Questionnaire
Behavioral: CBBDQ
a questionnaire for childood bladder and bowel dysfunctions

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. DVISS [ Time Frame: 2017-2018 ]
    The DVISS is a 14-item questionnaire originally designed in Turkish with the aim to diagnose patients with dysfunctional voiding. The DVISS includes 12 questions on bladder dysfunction, one on bowel dysfunctions and one on quality of life and has variable (Likert scales, dichotomous) answering options. The total score ranged from 0 to 35 points; sum scores higher from 9 points indicate increased disease severity
