There is a need to validate existing patient reported outcome measures (PROMS) to provide evidence on their validity. Subsequently, short measures can be developed from validated PROMS to lessen respondent burden. The aim of this study was to:

•Validate the three domain conceptual framework of the Diabetes Health Profile (DHP-18)
•Apply Rasch analysis to investigate the performance of the DHP-18 and develop a short 12 item version (DHP-12).
