Status Information


Term Description

The Questionnaire on Pediatric Gastrointestinal Symptoms-Rome III Version (QPGS-RIII)* is an adaptation and abbreviation of the Questionnaire on Pediatric Gastrointestinal Symptoms (QPGS) (Walker, Caplan-Dover, & Rasquin-Weber, 2000; Walker et al., 2005) that was developed with the support of a grant from the Rome Foundation and that has undergone preliminary validation (Caplan, Walker, & Rasquin, 2005a, 2005b). The QPGS-RIII is an adaptation and abbreviation of the original QPGS. It was developed with input from the Rome III Child and Adolescent Committee and the Rome III Questionnaire Committee. Although the format and many items from the original QPGS have been retained, several new items have been included, and the scoring has been revised to reflect changes in symptom criteria based on Rome III. The questionnaire uses five-point scales to measure frequency, severity, and duration of symptoms. In addition, it may be scored to assess whether a patient meets the criteria for each of the individual functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs). The questionnaire is followed by a coding system that identifies provisional diagnoses from the responses to the questions. The QPGS-RIII cannot substitute for the medical evaluation, and clinical judgment required for an accurate diagnosis. *Developed by Lynn S. Walker, Arlene Caplan, and Andree Rasquin. This questionnaire should be completed by the parent of a young child, aged 4 years old through 9 years old. Please see the adolescent and adult version of this questionnaire for ages 10 years old and over. The Gastrointestinal Working Group recommends performing serology for celiac sprue in patients with diarrhea.
