In summary, we have demonstrated that the psychometric properties of the Norwegian version of the ESRD-SCL were satisfactory and in line with the German original. Hence, the questionnaire can be recommended for use in future studies. The present study was not designed to evaluate responsiveness, which should be assessed in a longitudinal study.
KS participated in planning and design of the study, organization of data collection, performed the statistical analysis, drafted and revised the manuscript. RG participated in the planning and design of the study, organization of data collection, and critically reviewed the manuscript. Both authors read and approved the final manuscript.Reprint Address
