The Pediatric Symptom Checklist (PSC) is a brief screening questionnaire that is used by pediatricians and other health professionals to improve the recognition and treatment of psychosocial problems in children.
In addition to the original 35-item parent report form of the PSC, there are now many other validated forms including translations of the original form into more than a dozen other languages, a youth self report, a pictorial version, and a briefer 17 item version for both the parent and youth forms.
Population of focus: Health care providers
