Self-reported post-operative recovery in children: development of an instrument.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


According to the United Nations (1989), children have the right to be heard and to have their opinions respected. Since post-operative recovery is an individual and subjective experience and patient-reported outcome measures are considered important, our aim was to develop and test an instrument to measure self-reported quality of recovery in children after surgical procedures.
