Finnish YP-CORE

This post is available in: English, there may also be a subsite in your language, see "Subsites" in the top menu.

The translation of the YP-CORE into Finnish was led by Dr. Vera Gergov assisted by Mikko Inkinen, Anni Saarela, Jannina Mäkynen, Jarmo Kontunen, Sanna Selinummi, Niina Saikkonen, Sara Knuuti, Aino Kuivila and Akseli Ottelin (with a bit of input from me, Chris Evans!) We published a paper showing reassuring results from an initial psychometric exploration of the measure but there is certainly scope for more work exploring it, particularly check for gender and age cohort differences in psychometrics (as found in the UK, see the YP-CORE page) and establishing good referential distributions for Finland. The first paper is:

Gergov, V., Lahti, J., Marttunen, M., Lipsanen, J., Evans, C., Ranta, K., … Lindberg, N. (2017). Psychometric properties of the Finnish version of the Young Person’s Clinical Outcomes in Routine Evaluation (YP-CORE) questionnaire. Nordic Journal of Psychiatry71(4), 250–255.

A Swedish translation of the YP-CORE (Swedish is an official minority language in Finland) has now been completed, coordinated by Emilia Öhman. More on that shortly.
