Abstract

Objective To conduct the Chinese cross-cultural adaptation of the Cochlear Implant Quality of Life-10 Global (CIQOL-10 Global) instrument. Patients Bilingual Chinese American cochlear implant users. Intervention Chinese cross-cultural adaptation of the CIQOL-10 Global. Main Outcome Measure Description of the process of Chinese cross-cultural adaptation of the CIQOL-10 Global and pilot testing of the Chinese CIQOL-10 Global in the target patient population. Results The CIQOL-10 Global was cross-culturally adapted into Chinese. Ten participants were recruited for pilot testing. There was wide representation from across the target population in terms of age (mean, 44.8 yr; range, 20.2-80.3 yr), sex (5 were male, 5 were female), education, and socioeconomic factors. All participants were able to easily read, comprehend, and fill out the Chinese CIQOL-10 Global. Conclusions The Chinese version of the CIQOL-10 Global is now available to provide an overall assessment of quality of life of Chinese-speaking cochlear implant users.
