Revista Latino-Americana de Enfermagem , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-11692008000600002
Abstract: the purpose of this study was to adapt the spitzer quality of life index and evaluate its reliability in patients with low back pain. the following steps were followed: translation, back-translation, evaluation by a committee, and pretest. the reliability was estimated through stability and homogeneity assessment. the validity was tested comparing scores of the spitzer (qli) with the sf-36 and the roland-morris. the psychometric properties were evaluated by the self-application on 120 patients. results showed that the cronbach's alpha was 0.77. intraclass correlation coefficient for test-retest reliability was 0.960 (p<0.001; ic95%: 0.943; 0.972). spearman′s correlation coefficient for test-retest reliability was 0.937 (p<0.001). there was significant correlation between the spitzer (qli) scores and the dimensions of the sf-36. a significant negative correlation was found between the spitzer (qli) and the roland-morris scores (r = - 0.730). the adaptation process was conducted successfully and the questionnaire presented reliable psychometric measures.

Gallani, Maria Cecília Bueno Jayme;Colombo, Roberta Cunha Rodrigues;Alexandre, Neusa Maria Costa;Bressan-Biajone, Ana Maria;
Revista Brasileira de Enfermagem , 2003, DOI: 10.1590/S0034-71672003000100008
Abstract: this study compared measures of quality of life (qol) in two groups of coronary heart disease patients: one with myocardial infarction (mi) and one with angina (a). the population studied consisted of 49 patients from group mi and 27 patients from group a. a questionnaire was used to identify socio-demographic and clinical data, as well as data from the sf-36 instrument, to assess the patients' qol. it was observed in both groups that the qol declined in the following aspects: physical functioning, pain, general health condition, vitality, social functioning, and mental health. socio-demographic and clinical variables influenced the qol score. studies aiming at a larger number of individuals and a better understanding of the effects of the variables above upon the qol of coronary patients are needed.

Revista Latino-Americana de Enfermagem , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-11692012000100011
Abstract: the goal of this study was to translate and adapt the pain disability questionnaire (pdq) to brazilian portuguese, as well as to assess its psychometric properties and practicability. the following methodological steps were followed: translation, synthesis, back-translation, expert committee assessment and pre-test. the psychometric properties were assessed through the application of a questionnaire to 119 patients with chronic musculoskeletal disorders. the results indicated the reliability of the instrument, with a cronbach's alpha coefficient of 0.86, and high stability in the test-retest. a moderate correlation was found between the pdq scores and the numerical pain scale. negative correlations were found between the spitzer quality of life index and the functional condition, psychosocial component and total pdq score. construct validity demonstrated significant difference in pdq scores between symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals. the pdq revealed fast application and easy understanding. the results indicated a successful cultural adaptation and reliable psychometric properties.

Semina : Ciências Biológicas e da Saúde , 2007,
Abstract: Musculoskeletal disorders are an important occupational health problem. Health workers are at high risk of developing musculoskeletal symptoms due to inadequate ergonomic conditions. The procedures that involve the moving and transportation of patients are considered the most dangerous ones for health workers. Therefore, training programs on handling patients are a compulsory part of prevention programs. The purpose of the study was to synthesize and describe basic strategies to prevent and control musculoskeletal symptoms in health workers by means of an ergonomic theoretical framework. A systematic review was used in order to integrate empiric evidence produced by the author’s scientific research. Themes related to postural orientations, specific ergonomic aspects and considerations about handling patients are presented. This study also describes the devices that should be used when moving and transferring patients, taking into consideration that they have to be urgently implemented in health practical activities. Os distúrbios osteomusculares representam um importante problema de saúde ocupacional. Os trabalhadores da área de saúde est o sujeitos a sintomas osteomusculares, atribuídos particularmente a condi es ergon micas inadequadas. Os procedimentos que envolvem a movimenta o e o transporte de pacientes s o considerados os mais penosos para esses trabalhadores, e a implementa o de treinamento é parte obrigatória de programas de preven o. O presente trabalho teve por objetivo sintetizar e descrever criticamente os pontos básicos das principais estratégias de preven o e controle dos sintomas osteomusculares, em trabalhadores da área de saúde, dentro de uma abordagem ergon mica. A metodologia empregada foi uma revis o sistemática, articulando evidências empíricas produzidas por trabalhos científicos da autora. Nele se discutem temas relativos às orienta es posturais, aspectos ergon micos específicos e considera es sobre os procedimentos de movimenta o e transporte de pacientes. Descreve também equipamentos que deveriam ser utilizados durante a movimenta o e o transporte de pacientes considerando que eles devem ser urgentemente implementados nas atividades práticas da área de saúde.
