The preferred method of use of these charts is self administration.

For example, hypertension and diabetes in one patient can both impact on functional status, but their relative importance and effects cannot be determined from routine recording. Standardisation of test conditions and assessment of inter-rater reliability may improve the results for research projects. When more than one chart is used it is recommended that they are administered in the following order: Author information Wonva and License information Disclaimer.

A total of 95 patients presenting with acute low wpnca pain were recruited from 15 single-handed general practices in northern Germany.

National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Do high prescribers diagnose differently? As a research instrument the test-retest reliability will always be an issue for indicators that are global and influenced by so many variables. To cop the Charts have been published in the following languages: Baseline and follow-up measurements of the charts were compared and correlations of chart scores with patients’ measurements of pain intensity on a visual analogue scale, general practitioners’ ratings of impairment and patients’ measurements of recovery were analysed.


How can it be measured in physicians’ offices? A study was carried out to determine whether the charts are able to measure xoop degree of functional impairment associated with acute illness and the improvement in functional ability accompanying the process of recovery.

The charts can be used independently or in groups. The charts ask patients to use the timescale of the past two weeks when rating their condition. Functional status relates to the patient, not to the health problem, disease or episode of care.

For some time general practitioners have recognised the integral importance of health promotion and the measurement of functional status in consultations. Associated Data Supplementary Materials. Instruments for measuring functional status. The Medical Outcomes Trust Short Form 36 item inventory and derivatives of this instrument have been widely used in primary care settings. ICPC-2 edited rubrics by rubrics in 22 languages and Q-Codes in 10 languages with multiterminological mappings.

These drawings have enhanced the applicability of these Charts in settings where there is variability of literacy amongst the general practice patient population. A Manual 27provides further information about the development and use of the charts, how to translate the charts, and a contact list for further assistance, including authors of the various translations. When the charts are used in new cultural settings, it is important to establish that the concepts measured are appropriate and specific to that environment.

It is suggested that patients consider their present complaints when rating their condition.

COOP-WONCA charts: a suitable functional status screening instrument in acute low back pain?

This may partly be a result of patients misunderstanding the instructions.

A manual has been edited by the University of Groningen. The measurement of clinical pain intensity: For example, Rubric 28 clop component one symptoms and complaints of all chapters of ICPC refers to limited function and disabilities.

Several have been used in general practice settings. It thus relates less directly to the ICPC codes than does severity of illness. These measurements are particularly important in dealing with ageing and those with wojca problems.
