Background: The Quality Indicators for Physiotherapy Management of Hip and Knee Osteoarthritis (QUIPA) is the only patient-reported outcome measure assessing the quality indicators of physiotherapy management of hip/knee osteoarthritis (OA). It consists of 3 subscales and a total of 18 questions.

Objectives: The purpose of this research was to translate and cross-culturally adapt the QUIPA into the Turkish language and test its validity and reliability in Turkish-speaking patients with hip/knee OA.

Methods: Ninety-two patients with hip/knee OA were enrolled in the research. The QUIPA was cross-culturally adapted according to guidelines defined by Beaton et al. Participants completed QUIPA tool twice, with an interval of 7 days. Construct validity was tested via Exploratory Factor Analysis. Test-retest reliability and internal consistency were determined interpreting Intraclass Correlation Coefficient (ICC) and Cronbach’s alpha coefficient, respectively.

Results: The Exploratory Factor Analysis demonstrated that QUIPA has 3 factors. For the first, second and third subscales and total score of QUIPA, ICC was found to be as 0.895, 0.947, 0.665, and 0.925, respectively. Cronbach’s alpha coefficient was determined to be as 0.682, 0.797, 0.593, and 0.812, respectively for the first, second and third subscales and total score of QUIPA. These results indicate that Turkish version of QUIPA has excellent test-retest reliability and good internal consistency.

Conclusion: Turkish version of the QUIPA determined to be a valid and reliable tool to assess the quality indicators of physiotherapy management of hip/knee OA in Turkish-speaking patients. It is suggested to be used in clinical settings and researchs.
