  1. Evaluating changes in health status : Reliability and responsiveness of five generic health status measures in workers with musculoskeletal disorders.

    Article - En anglais


    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.
