Janet Blenner is a nursing professor at San Diego State University School of Nursing. She is currently developing a new celiac disease quality of life scale (CQOL). She educates all of the nursing students, physicians, practicing nurses, and patients with certain diseases such as Crohn’s to get tested for celiac disease. Although she already has tenure and a full professorship (she no longer needs to do research), living with celiac disease has made her want to study the quality of life issues that surround living a gluten-free life. She has developed a Celiac Disease Quality of Life Scale (CQOL), to enable health professionals, researchers and others to better study and document the quality of life issues in those with celiac disease. In addition, all the celiac research has had to rely on generic measures of quality of life, and these scales don’t begin to captivate our unique needs.
