Abstract

There is a wide variation in agreement between adolescents with JIA and their parents that is dependent on which health-related variable is under scrutiny. Proxy report is likely to be valid for adolescents with JIA at either the mild or severe end of the spectrum and/or for the visible manifestations of the disease. Consideration of both adolescent and parent-proxy reports is therefore important in future research.
