The results of the two groups were compared using the inter-rater agreement. It was also evaluated the internal consistency of the questions. RESULTS: The results show that the instrument is experienced as simple and quick to use for patients. Data analysis allowed us to conclude that the Italian translation is valid and consistent. In the phase of the interview there were some aspects that suggest, in a development of this tool, some changes that could increase the accuracy and informational content. CONCLUSIONS: The Italian version of the questionnaire GHAA-9m has good validity, reliability, and shows property valuation comparable to those of the American version and can therefore be used in daily practice Digestive Endoscopy
