The identification of the content of a measure could ensure that the most appropriate measure is chosen to meet a particular objective. Mapping the Impact of Weight on Quality Of Life (IWQOL-Lite) to the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF
) will improve the understanding of its structure and aid in the interpretation of the results.
A mapping exercise was performed by 21 raters using the Delphi technique to identify the ICF
codes that best describe the content of the items of the IWQOL-Lite. Both French and English versions were linked to validate the French translation. The results were validated on a sample of 122 participants and were also compared to the mapping performed by another group.
Most of the content of the IWQOL-Lite was identified. All five components of the ICF
were represented in the IWQOL-Lite. The mapping differed across languages. The results of the mapping were similar to those obtained by another group.
The content of the IWQOL-Lite is compatible with the ICF
. The measure has good content validity. The content could be improved by the addition and the specification of some terms. The French translation of some items should be revised.
