Abstract

The Revised Illness Perception Questionnaire (IPQ-R) has been used extensively to measure illness perceptions of several patient populations. However, the instrument was developed using participants of mainly European-origin. The reliability and validity of the IPQ-R may therefore need to be established before use among populations of different ethnic and cultural origins. This study investigated the factor structure and internal consistency reliability of the IPQ-R in African-origin patients with type 2 diabetes.
