- Designed by A. Morris, M. Lutman, and L. Yardley (2009), the Vestibular Rehabilitation Benefit Questionnaire (VBRQ) was designed to assess the outcome of individuals undergoing vestibular rehabilitation.
- The prototype questionnaire was developed based on the literature, patient interview and items from other subjective measures of dizziness (DHI, VHQ, DFI, UCLA-DQ, VADL, VSS, and the DBS). T
- he prototype questionnaire was designed to measure the effect of dizziness on quality of life and included 36 items.
- The tool was validated against a set of established questionnaires; the DHI, VSS-sf, and the SF-36. The tool then was refined down to what is currently known and recognized as the 22- item VRBQ.
- The VBRQ measures the difference between the individual’s current state of symptoms and quality of life as compared to a state that is normal for the individual.
- The VBRQ is a concise and psychometrically robust tool that subjectively addresses the primary aspects of dizziness impact on quality of life.
