Validity of a streamlined version of the FOCUS: Process and outcome.

Summary of "Validity of a streamlined version of the FOCUS: Process and outcome."

The Focus on the Outcomes of Communication Under Six (FOCUS) is a 50-item outcome measure based on the framework and concepts of WHO's International Classification of Functioning. The FOCUS has been shown to capture participation-level changes associated with speech and language therapy in children 18 to 72 months old, and has established validity and reliability. However, there were reasons to try to reduce the measure without losing any of its proven value as a change-detecting instrument.

A cardiac arrhythmia that is caused by interaction of two independently initiated cardiac impulses of different rates from two separate foci. Generally one focus is the SINOATRIAL NODE, the normal pacemaker. The ectopic focus is usually in the HEART VENTRICLE but can be in the HEART ATRIUM or the ATRIOVENTRICULAR NODE. Modulation of the parasystolic rhythm by the sinus rhythm depends on the completeness of entrance block surrounding the parasystolic focus.
