Summary of "Considerations in preparing a multicenter study: Lessons learned from the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit Comfort Questionnaire (EMUCQ) validation feasibility study."

It is recommended to perform a pilot testing before conducting a validation study of a novel questionnaire. Pilot studies may serve different purposes. The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility of a multicenter validation study, to recruit additional study centers, and to undertake orientating descriptive item analysis of the 44-item Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) Comfort Questionnaire (EMUCQ).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Controlled studies which are planned and carried out by several cooperating institutions to assess certain variables and outcomes in specific patient populations, for example, a multicenter study of congenital anomalies in children.

Work consisting of a controlled study executed by several cooperating institutions.

Learned expectation that one's responses are independent of reward and, hence, do not predict or control the occurrence of rewards. Learned helplessness derives from a history, experimentally induced or naturally occurring, of having received punishment/aversive stimulation regardless of responses made. Such circumstances result in an impaired ability to learn. Used for human or animal populations. (APA, Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms, 1994)

Methods of preparing tissue for examination and study of the origin, structure, function, or pathology.

The study of social phenomena which characterize the learned, shared, and transmitted social activities of a particular ethnic group.
