Evaluating changes in health status : Reliability and responsiveness of five generic health status measures in workers with musculoskeletal disorders.
To compare the measurement properties over time of five generic health status assessment techniques.
Five health status measures were completed on two occasions hy a sample of workers with musculoskeletal disorders.
They included the SF-36, Nottingham Health Profile Health Status Section of the Ontario Health Survey (OHS), Duke Health Profile, the Sickness Impact Profile and a self-report of change in health betwween tests.
Subjects were accrued from a work site (within one week of injury) (n=53), physiotherapy clinics (four weeks after injury), (n=34), and a tertiary level rehabilitation center (more than four weeks after injury) (n=40).
Analysis : Intraclass correlation coefficients (ICC) derived from nonparametric one-way analysis of variance were used for test-retest reliability in those who had not changed (n=49).
Various responsiveness statistics were used to evaluate responsiveness in those who claimed they had a positive change in health (n=45) and in those who would have been expected to have a positive change (n=79).
Of the 127 subjects recruited, 114 completed both questionnaires (89.8%) In the subjects who reported no change in health, analysis of targeted dimensions (overall scores physical function, and pain) demonstrated acceptahle to excellent test-retest reliability in all hut the Duke Health Profile.
