ABS TRACT Objective: The aims were to evaluate the validity-reliability of the Turkish spouse-version of the Illness Perception Questionnaire-Revised (IPQ-R); to examine the role of spouses’ illness perceptions and psychological well-being in the illness severity and depression of women with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Material and Methods: One-hundred and one married women diagnosed with RA and their husbands were enrolled. Spouses’ beliefs about RA were assessed by Turkish spouse-version of the IPQ-R. The data were collected using Visual Analogue Scale-Pain, DAS-28, and the Health Assessment Questionnaire-Disability Index in patients; global life satisfaction by the Satisfaction with LifeScale in husbands; Beck Depression Inventory in all participants. Results: The scale demonstrated satisfactory convergent validity, discriminate validity and reliability. Patients’ disability, depression, pain scores were correlated with IPQ-Rsubscales positively (p<0.05). Patients’disability, pain, disease activity, depression levels were correlated with spouses’ depression scores positively and with spouses’life satisfaction scores negatively (p<0.05). In multiple regression analysis; consequences, emotional and timeline cyclical-subscales were found to be influential variable on disability (p<0.05). Emotional representations-subscale, spouses’depression and life satisfaction scores were found to be influential variable on patients’ depression (p<0.05). Conclusion: Turkish version of spouse version of the IPQ-R could be a valuable instrument in the assessment of illness perceptions in Turkish husbands of women with RA. Spouses’ pessimistic beliefs about RA and their poor psychological well-being were significantly related to disability, pain severity and depression level of women with RA. Husbands’ illness perceptions about disease and psychological status should be taken into account in the treatment of women with RA.
