1. Item response theory methods can improve the measurement of physical function by combining the modified health assessment questionnaire and the SF-36 physical function scale. (Abstract)

Item response theory methods can improve the measurement of physical function by combining the modified health assessment questionnaire and the SF-36 physical function scale. To compare the measurement properties of the Modified Health Assessment Questionnaire [MHAQ], the SF-36((R)) Health Survey 10 item Physical Functioning scale [PF10], and scores from an item response theory (IRT) based scale combining the two measures.Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients (n = 339) enrolled in a multi-center (...) individual patient scores was smaller for the combined (total) IRT based scale than for other measures. The MHAQ and PF10 were about 70% and 50% as efficient as the total IRT score of physical functioning in discriminating among ACR groups, respectively. The MHAQ and PF10 were also less efficient than the total IRT score in discriminating among treatment groups.Combining scales from the two short forms yields a more powerful tool with greater sensitivity to treatment response.

5. Validity and reproducibility of a physical activity questionnaire for older adults: questionnaire versus accelerometer for assessing physical activity in older adults Full Text available with Trip Pro

Validity and reproducibility of a physical activity questionnaire for older adults: questionnaire versus accelerometer for assessing physical activity in older adults Physical activity (PA) is important in older adults for the maintenance of functional ability. Assessing PA may be difficult. Few PA questionnaires have been compared to activity monitors. We examined reproducibility and validity of the self-administered Longitudinal Ageing Study Amsterdam Physical Activity Questionnaire (LAPAQ (...) ) against a triaxial accelerometer (ACTR) (Sensewear(®) Pro) in older adults.Participants wore the ACTR continuously for two weeks. After 2 (T [time] = 1) and 4 (T = 2) weeks, participants completed the LAPAQ. Since the LAPAQ asks about 2 weeks' worth of physical activity, the ACTR and LAPAQ coincided at T1. T2 was used to assess the reproducibility of the LAPAQ results only. We calculated Pearson's correlation coefficients (PCC) to examine reproducibility and validity. For visualization, we used

6. Measurement of minimal disease activity in psoriatic arthritis using PROMIS-Physical Function or the Health Assessment Questionnaire-Disability Index. (Abstract)

Measurement of minimal disease activity in psoriatic arthritis using PROMIS-Physical Function or the Health Assessment Questionnaire-Disability Index. To assess the interchangeability of the Health Assessment Questionnaire-Disability Index (HAQ-DI) with the Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System-Physical Function (PROMIS-PF) in the calculation of minimal disease activity (MDA) in psoriatic arthritis (PsA).Comprehensive PsA disease activity was collected concomitantly with HAQ (...) -DI and PROMIS-PF measures in a PsA cohort. PROMIS-based MDA definitions were built using the existing cross-walk between the scores: HAQ-DI≤0.5 equivalent to a PROMIS-PF Tscore≥41.3. We assessed agreement between MDA (MDA HAQ-DI) and PROMIS-PF MDA definitions (MDA PROMIS-PF4a, MDA PROMIS-PF Bank) at each visit and longitudinally (MDA state changes between consecutive visits) through the kappa statistic. The predictive value of MDA PROMIS-PF for MDA HAQ-DI was assessed using ROC curve analysis.One

7. Using Rasch analysis to compare the psychometric properties of the Short Form 36 physical function score and the Health Assessment Questionnaire disability index in patients with psoriatic arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. (Abstract)

Using Rasch analysis to compare the psychometric properties of the Short Form 36 physical function score and the Health Assessment Questionnaire disability index in patients with psoriatic arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Item-response theory is increasingly used in the development of robust measurement tools. The extent to which the Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ) disability index (DI) and Short Form 36 (SF-36) physical functioning subscale (PF) fit a Rasch model in psoriatic (...) arthritis (PsA) is uncertain. Our objective was to compare the psychometric properties of the HAQ DI and SF-36 PF in PsA and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) using Rasch analysis.Patients with RA (n = 142) and PsA (n = 134) were identified from a disease register based at a regional rheumatology service that serves a population of approximately 400,000 individuals. Responses to the HAQ DI and SF-36 PF were analyzed for item fit, differential item functioning (DIF), scale length (item separation), floor effects

8. Validity and reliability of a video questionnaire to assess physical function in older adults. (Abstract)

Validity and reliability of a video questionnaire to assess physical function in older adults. Self-report questionnaires are widely used to assess physical function in older adults. However, they often lack a clear frame of reference and hence interpreting and rating task difficulty levels can be problematic for the responder. Consequently, the usefulness of traditional self-report questionnaires for assessing higher-level functioning is limited. Video-based questionnaires can overcome some (...) of these limitations by offering a clear and objective visual reference for the performance level against which the subject is to compare his or her perceived capacity. Hence the purpose of the study was to develop and validate a novel, video-based questionnaire to assess physical function in older adults independently living in the community.A total of 61 community-living adults, 60years or older, were recruited. To examine validity, 35 of the subjects completed the video questionnaire, two types of physical

9. Rasch analysis suggests that health assessment questionnaire II is a generic measure of physical functioning for rheumatic diseases: a cross-sectional study Full Text available with Trip Pro

Rasch analysis suggests that health assessment questionnaire II is a generic measure of physical functioning for rheumatic diseases: a cross-sectional study Versions of the Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ) are commonly used to measure physical functioning across multiple rheumatic diseases but there has been no clear demonstration that any HAQ version is actually generic. This study aimed to show that the HAQ-II instrument is invariant across different rheumatic disease categories using (...) the Rasch measurement model, which would confirm that the instrument is generic.HAQ-II responses from 882 consecutive rheumatology clinic attendees were fitted to a Rasch model. Invariance across disease was assessed by analysis of variance of residuals implemented in RUMM2030. Rasch modeled HAQ-II scores across disease categories were compared and the mathematical relationship between raw HAQ-II scores and Rasch modeled scores was also determined.The HAQ-II responses fitted the Rasch model

10. A comparison of questionnaires for assessing physical function in patients with lower extremity bone metastases. (Abstract)

A comparison of questionnaires for assessing physical function in patients with lower extremity bone metastases. To assess, (i) the degree to which the: PROMIS Physical Function Cancer, PROMIS Neuro-QoL Mobility, Toronto Extremity Salvage Score (TESS), Lower Extremity Function Score (LEFS), and Musculoskeletal Tumor Society score (MSTS), measure physical function; (ii) differences in coverage and reliability; and (iii) difference in completion time.One hundred of 115 (87%) patients with lower (...) in all, but highest for the PROMIS Neuro-QoL Mobility (7%). The SEM was below the threshold-indicating reliability-over a wide range of ability levels for the PROMIS-Physical Function, TESS, and LEFS. Completion time differed between questionnaires (P < 0.001) and was shortest for the PROMIS questionnaires.The PROMIS Physical Function is the most useful questionnaire. This is due to its reliability over a wide range of ability levels, validity, brevity, and good coverage. J. Surg. Oncol. 2016;114:691

16. Complex measures and indices for clinical research compared with simple patient questionnaires to assess function, pain, and global estimates as rheumatology "vital signs" for usual clinical care. (Abstract)

Complex measures and indices for clinical research compared with simple patient questionnaires to assess function, pain, and global estimates as rheumatology "vital signs" for usual clinical care. Indices of multiple measures have been developed to assess and monitor patients with rheumatic diseases, as no single "gold standard" measure is available for diagnosis, prognosis, and monitoring of all individual patients. Rheumatology indices generally include 4 types of measures from a standard (...) data other than laboratory tests. Information from a patient often is as prominent in clinical decisions as information from a physical examination or laboratory tests, and is easily collected as standardized "scientific" data on patient questionnaires designed for usual clinical care, which require minimal professional effort. Patient-derived data-along with physical examination, laboratory, and imaging data-are useful rheumatology "vital signs" to assess and monitor patient status, provide

physical impairment affects ADL, with a decreasing sensitivity to the detection of demented patients who do not necessarily present with physical impediments. The Activities of Daily Living Questionnaire (ADLQ) assesses functioning in self-care, household care, employment and recreation, shopping and money, travel and communication. The present study sought to determine the usefulness of the Spanish version of the ADLQ (ADLQ-SV) for assessing functional impairment in different types of dementia.The (...) Assessment of Functional Impairment in Dementia with the Spanish Version of the Activities of Daily Living Questionnaire. Functional assessment is essential in dementia as it provides an invaluable tool for diagnosis and treatment. To date, most scales of activities of daily living (ADL) have focused either on basic or instrumental activities, providing an incomplete profile of the patients' level of dependence on their caregivers. Some scales concentrate too intensely on the way in which

20. The Short Musculoskeletal Function Assessment Questionnaire (SMFA): cross-cultural adaptation, validity, reliability and responsiveness of the Swedish SMFA (SMFA-Swe). Full Text available with Trip Pro

The Short Musculoskeletal Function Assessment Questionnaire (SMFA): cross-cultural adaptation, validity, reliability and responsiveness of the Swedish SMFA (SMFA-Swe). The Short Musculoskeletal Function Assessment Questionnaire (SMFA) is designed to measure the functional status of patients with a broad range of musculoskeletal injuries and disorders. It has previously been validated for an American population. We have translated the SMFA into Swedish and tested the translated version (SMFA-Swe (...) ) as regards validity, reliability and responsiveness. Acute and elective cases (n = 298) were included in the study. The Swedish version of the SF-36 was used in the validation. We found that the SMFA-Swe was easy to use, that its reliability (internal consistency and stability) was good, that it correlated well with the SF-36 physical scores and that it was also sensitive to changes in musculoskeletal function over time. Orthopedic studies frequently use disease-specific outcome measures because
