dc.description.abstractObjectives To examine metric properties and responsiveness of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) Generic Set when used in routine clinical practice to assess functioning.en_US
dc.description.abstractDesign Prospective multicentre study.en_US
dc.description.abstractSetting 50 hospitals from 20 provinces of Mainland China.en_US
dc.description.abstractParticipants 4510 adult inpatients admitted to the departments of Pulmonology, Cardiology, Neurology, Orthopaedics, Cerebral Surgery or Rehabilitation Medicine.en_US
dc.description.abstractMain outcome measures The ICF Generic Set (ICF Generic 6 Set) applied with an 11-point numeric rating scale (0-no problem to 10-complete problem) was fit to the Partial Credit Model (PCM) to create an interval score of functioning.en_US
dc.description.abstractResults PCM assumptions were found to be fulfilled after accounting for Differential Item Functioning. With an average improvement by 7.86 points of the metric ICF Generic 6 score (95% CI 7.53 to 8.19), the ICF Generic 6 Set proved sensitive to change (Cohen's f(2)=0.41). Ceiling and floor effects on detecting change in functioning were cancelled or reduced by using the metric score.en_US
dc.description.abstractConclusion The ICF Generic 6 Set can be used for the assessment of functioning in routine clinical practice and an interval score can be derived which is sensitive to change.en_US
