Stress among mothers and fathers of children with diabetes: Validation of the Spanish version of the Problem Areas in Diabetes scale (PAID-PR)
The constant experience of stress associated with caring for a child with diabetes can affect the emotional well-being of their parents. The main purpose of the present study was to analyse the factor structure, reliability and validity of the Spanish version of the Problem Areas in Diabetes-Parent Revised (PAID-PR) scale. Two hundred and thirty sevenparents (146 mothers and 91 fathers) of children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes completed the PAID-PR. Exploratory factor analysis yielded 2factors. As expected, PAID-PR scores correlated with measures of trait-anxiety. Mothers reported higher stress levels. Results indicate that the Spanish version of the PAID-PR is a reliable and valid brief measure, useful in research and clinical settings.
