Illness Perceptions Questionnaire (IPQ-R)
The illness perceptions questionnaire measures an individual’s beliefs and feelings about their illness.
Identity in which patients rate the number of symptoms they perceive to be part of the illness
The cause of the illness
The timeline of the illness, how long they think it will last
The consequences of the illness, including whether they perceive it to be a serious condition
Whether they think the illness can be cured or controlled
These components showed good test-retest reliability, with correlations ranging from.46 to.88 (Moss-Morris et al., 2002).
