Bottom Line: The authors reviewed and discussed the results of the cognitive debriefing interviews and modified the Japanese version.The final Japanese version was confirmed to be conceptually equivalent to the original English version.The usage of this instrument would enable clinicians to quickly screen the past history and current frequency of nocturnal behaviors.

ABSTRACT

Objective: There is no broad screening instrument that can comprehensively assess parasomnias and sleep-related movement disorders listed in the International Classification of Sleep Disorders. The aim of this study was to develop the Japanese version of the Munich Parasomnia Screening (MUPS), a screening instrument for parasomnias and nocturnal behaviors, which was developed and validated at the Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry.

Methods: A multi-step translation methodology consisting of forward translation, back translation, expert review, and cognitive debriefing interviews was performed between June and November 2011.

Results: The English version of the MUPS was translated into Japanese, and the original author performed an expert review on the basis of a detailed report on the forward and back translation steps. The cognitive debriefing was carried out in five patients with parasomnia. The mean time to fill out the questionnaire was 8 minutes (ranging from 2 to 17 minutes). The authors reviewed and discussed the results of the cognitive debriefing interviews and modified the Japanese version. The final Japanese version was confirmed to be conceptually equivalent to the original English version.

Conclusion: The Japanese version of the MUPS is an easy-to-use self-rating instrument for parasomnia and nocturnal behavior screening, consistent with the original version. The usage of this instrument would enable clinicians to quickly screen the past history and current frequency of nocturnal behaviors.

Mentions: All procedures of the study were conducted in accordance with the guidelines outlined in the Declaration of Helsinki. This study was reviewed and approved by the ethics committee of the Neuropsychiatric Research Institute, and all subjects provided written informed consent to participate in the study. Translation and linguistic validation were carried out between June and November 2011. The coordinator (RB) directly managed the overall process of the research. The following methodology was followed for the development and linguistic validation of the Japanese version (Figure 1).
