Some patients perceive the experience of hospitalization in an epilepsy monitoring unit (EMU) to be an uncomfortable one. In order to provide comfort-enhancing measures, nurses need to assess comfort levels. For this purpose, Kolcaba developed the General Comfort Questionnaire (GCQ), which may be modified for usage in specific settings. The objective of this study was to develop an instrument to assess comfort of adult patients during hospitalization in an EMU, namely the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit Comfort Questionnaire (EMUCQ).
