Activities of daily living (ADL) are key to daily living and adjustment. A number of ADL scales have been developed and validated to examine functional performance in the pediatric population; however, most of these scales are limited to specific groups. The purpose of this research was to test the plausibility of developing and validating a hierarchical versus additive ADL summary scale for children and youth using the interRAI Child Youth Mental Health (ChYMH) assessment system. Data from 8980 typically d...
Predicting recovery of functional performance within pediatric rehabilitation following brain injury is important for health professionals and families, but information regarding factors associated with change in functional skills ('what the child can do') and functional independence ('what the child does') is limited. This study examined change in functional skills and independence over time in children with moderate-severe brain injury during prolonged inpatient rehabilitation.
Mobility is essential for activities of daily living and therapists should give priority to evaluate its effects in their client's performance. We aimed to ascertain the intra- and inter-rater reliability of Functional Mobility Assessment (FMA) and to identify correlations among satisfaction, independence, and skills in 44 users of manual wheelchairs and three users of powered wheelchairs. We analyzed the test-retest and inter-rater reliability of the FMA in a sample of 47 wheelchair users using the Cronbac...
The aims of the study were (1) to assess the agreement and correlation between self-reported functional independence and observations of family caregivers in a heterogeneous population of community-dwelling older adults with disabilities and (2) to determine how self-reports and caregiver reports correlate with evaluator rated functional independence over time.
The physical function of children with sarcoma after surgery has not been studied explicitly. This paucity of research is partly because of the lack of a sufficiently sensitive pediatric functional measure. The goal of this study was to establish and validate a standardized measure of physical function in pediatric patients with extremity tumors.
To develop an item response-theory (IRT)-calibrated, patient-reported outcome measure of subjective independence for individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Aging is associated with declining balance, which may increase fall risk and reduce independence. There is a paucity of work examining functional tasks (e.g., standing from a chair, lifting) related to fall risk. Additionally, many past studies have considered older adults as one age group, rather than viewing aging as a continuum across older adulthood.
An association between fatigue and depression was reported for older adults. We examined the association between fatigue, sleep and depression from interRAI-HC assessments of community dwelling older people (65+ years). Interview data from 5,950 participants who completed their first interRAI-HC assessment was analysed (mean age, 81.3 ± 7.1 years; 60.2% female). Only 873 (15%) reported "severe" fatigue. Nearly half reported minor sleep problems. Depression was diagnosed in 693 participants (11.6%). Depre...
Lately, awake surgery has been frequently adapted for glioblastoma (GBM). However, even with awake surgery, the expected long-term independence levels may not be achieved. We studied the characteristics of independence levels in GBM patients, and investigated the usefulness and parameter thresholds of awake surgery from the standpoint of functional outcomes.
This study's main objective was to assess the sensitivity and specificity of the interRAI Community Health Assessment (CHA) for detecting the presence of vision loss (VL), hearing loss (HL) or both (Dual Sensory Loss, DSL) when compared against performance-based measures of vision and hearing. The interRAI CHA and the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) were administered to 200 adults (61+ years of age) who had VL, HL or DSL. We calculated the sensitivity and specificity of the interRAI CHA for detecting s...
Internalizing difficulties in children and adolescents refer to inner-directed disordered mood and emotions. The purpose of this study was to develop and assess the reliability and validity of the internalizing subscale on the interRAI Child and Youth Mental Health (ChYMH) in assessing broadband internalizing mental health symptoms. Data were collected from clinically-referred children/youths 4 to 18 years of age between 2015 and 2016 (N = 2536). After initial items relevant to internalizing disturbance...
The Pediatric American Pain Society Patient Outcomes Questionnaire (Pediatric APS-POQ): Development and Initial Psychometric Evaluation of a Brief and Comprehensive Measure of Pain and Pain Outcomes in Hospitalized Youth.
Pediatric pain assessment in the hospital traditionally involves the patient's self-report of pain intensity using a numeric rating scale, which does not capture the complexity of the pain experience. No valid, comprehensive measure of pain in hospitalized youth exists. This study was designed to develop and conduct initial psychometric testing of the Pediatric American Pain Society Patient Outcomes Questionnaire (Pediatric APS-POQ), a comprehensive patient-reported measure of pain and pain outcomes in hosp...
: Improved risk factor management and interventions have both been shown to improve mortality in stroke patients. Although this has been a success for acute care, it has placed a higher burden on stroke rehabilitation resources.: This study sought to identify the pre-stroke rehabilitation admission factors that best predict personal care home discharge.: Using a retrospective case-control, chart review design, 60 patients discharged to personal care homes from inpatient stroke rehabilitation between 2008 an...
In the absence of the corpus callosum due to either surgical transection or congenital agenesis, the interhemispheric exchange of information is disrupted, as emphasized by several clinical studies. In such cases, a reduction of interhemispheric functional connectivity, that is, an increased independence of the functional signals of the two disconnected hemispheres, is expected to occur. A growing literature has investigated this hypothesis, and a number of studies were able to confirm it. However, this inc...
Hypohydration has been suggested increasing the risk of vascular diseases, and it is associated with poor prognosis and worse functional outcome in stroke. Most studies have used blood parameters to determine patients' hydration status. The aim of this study was to measure urine osmolality (uOsm) and its influence on stroke severity and independence. A prospective descriptive study was conducted in stroke patients admitted to a stroke unit. All patients underwent neurological evaluation at admission and dis...
This study aimed to describe the change in functional status following bilateral subthalamic nucleus stimulation (STN-DBS) in Parkinson's disease (PD) and to identify predictors of postoperative functional dependence.
The natural learning experience from infancy to emerging adulthood, when considerable cognitive and functional growth is observed, mandates learning multiple real-world skills simultaneously. The present studies investigated whether learning multiple real-world skills simultaneously is possible in older adults, and also whether it improves both their cognitive abilities (working memory, episodic memory, and cognitive control) and functional independence.
Stroke often leads to abnormalities in muscle tone, posture, and motor control that may compromise voluntary motor function, thus affecting the motor control required for maintaining the synergy of both peripheral and respiratory muscles. To evaluate respiratory muscle strength, pulmonary function, trunk control, and functional independence in patients with stroke and to correlate trunk control with the other variables.
To examine the odds of persons with stroke achieving minimal clinically important difference (MCID) in functional independence during inpatient rehabilitation relative to cognitive impairment (CI) severity, site, and rehabilitation teams' exposure to a Cognitive Orientation to daily Occupational Performance (CO-OP) knowledge translation (KT) intervention DESIGN: A pre-post observational study was conducted using data from a centralized referral system. Our research team implemented a CO-OP KT intervention a...
To measure time spent by pediatric physical and occupational therapists in performing daily work activities.
Short-term and long-term morbidity and mortality are common following pediatric critical illness. Severe organ dysfunction is associated with significant in-hospital mortality in critically ill children; however, the performance of pediatric organ dysfunction scores as predictors of functional outcomes after critical illness has not been previously assessed.
Families play a key role in managing pediatric chronic illness. The PROMIS® pediatric family relationships measure was developed primarily within the general pediatric population. We evaluated the Family Relationships short form in the context of pediatric chronic diseases.
The Pediatric Stroke Outcome Measure-Summary of Impressions (PSOM-SOI) measures neurological function across right and left sensorimotor domains (Item A), language production (Item B), language comprehension (Item C), and cognition/behavior (Item D).
