BACKGROUND: Comorbid depression in Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is common. Developing accurate and time- efficient tools to measure depressive symptoms in HBV is important for research and clinical practice in China. AIMS: This study tested the psychometric properties of the Chinese version of the 16-item Quick Inventory of Depressive Symptomatology (QIDS-SR) in HBV patients. METHODS: The study recruited 245 depressed patients with HBV and related liver disease. The severity of depressive symptoms was assessed with the Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS) and the QIDS-SR. RESULTS: Internal consistency (Cronbach's alpha) was 0.796 for QIDS-SR. The QIDS-SR total score was significantly correlated with the MADRS total score (r=0.698, p<0.001). The QIDS-SR showed unidimensional measurement properties in exploratory factor analysis. CONCLUSIONS: The QIDS-SR (Chinese version) has good psychometric properties in HBV patients and appears to be useful in assessing depression in clinical settings.
