Short versions of the 32-item Hypomania Checklist (HCL-32): a comprehensive systematic review
Background: Bipolar disorder is frequently misdiagnosed, which leads to detrimental outcome. The 32-item Hypomania Checklist (HCL-32) is one of the most widely used self-reported screening instruments for hypomanic symptoms and short versions of the HCL-32 have been developed. This is a systematic review to examine the psychometric properties of HCL-32 short versions. Method: The PubMed, PsycINFO, Embase, Web of Science, and Cochrane Library databases were systematically and independently searched by two reviewers. Studies that developed HCL short versions were included. Basic demographic and clinical characteristics, psychometric properties of the HCL short versions were recorded. Results: Eighteen studies were identified and the majority of the HCL short versions showed satisfactory to good psychometric properties. Conclusion: Short versions of the HCL may facilitate the early identification of bipolar disorder.
