The study is a single, cross-sectional cognitive interview of FuRST 2.0, functional rating scale, administered to Huntington’s Disease Gene Expansion Carriers (HDGECs). The scale will be tested as a patient reported outcome (PRO) in that the information will come directly from the participant through self-report.
FuRST 2.0: Cognitive Pre-testing for a New Functional Rating Scale for Use in Huntington’s Disease – Round 2
The purpose is to identify real or potential comprehension or usage problems with scale items, response options, instructions and disclaimer statement, which are all components of the FuRST 2.0 scale. Through a structured cognitive interview with the participants, followed by qualitative analysis, the final phrasing of the individual scale items, response options, instructions and disclaimer statement for the scale will be generated. Depending on the results of this study, additional rounds of cognitive pre-testing may be required.
