Finnish YP-CORE

This page/post is also available in: English

Page created 25/2/20 to replace one destroyed by Download Monitor plugin (25/2/20), originally created early 2017, this tweaked to get rid of Download Monitor 28/3/20.

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.

Dr. Gergov in now in a different post and has no time really to continue the work on the YP-CORE much though she would have liked to. As a result I’m very keen to find one person, or a small group of people, who might take this up. I’m also very aware that we don’t have a Swedish translation of the YP-CORE (though we do have a good one of the CORE-OM). Do contact me if you could help with either or both of these challenges, or if you’d like a copy of our paper.


I have given up on the Download Monitor plugin, the second time I’ve had to give up on a download plugin, so from now on it’s simple download links:
Depending on your web browser, clicking on that will either open it, in which case you should be able to save it from there, or will offer to download it for you (or it may just download it to its default download location). Downloading means you accept the licence on the measure, see copyright and licensing information.
