2019 October

Two papers presenting quantitative data from the Danish/ Dutch phase with 1,077 family members have been publish together with a paper presenting qualitative analyses of free text comments.

A European pilot study is completed primo 2019 with participation of family members from Norway, Germany, Belgium, and Spain. A paper presenting data from the pilot study is currently being drafted.

The euroQ2 is by now validated as a single item questionnaire and available for family satisfaction surveys in Europe. Please contact one of the euroQ2 developers if you want to conduct a survey in your ICU.

As other similar questionnaires, the euroQ2 has an issue with high ceiling effect and is therefore not useful for measuring effect of interventions. Additionally, if combined domain scores are to be used, the euroQ2 needs additional reflective questions. A revision pilot process will therefore be conducted in Denmark, The Netherlands and the US in 2019/2020 to test both extended response categories and additional questions.
