Development and measurement properties of assessment tools used to examine pain and activity limitation in patients with musculoskeletal and neurological conditions. The Norwegian pain questionnaire was developed as a Norwegian version of the McGill Pain Questionnaire (MPQ) after collecting Norwegian pain descriptors. A Short-Form version of the MPQ was later translated and adjusted to the Norwegian language. The Back Performance Scale (BPS) was developed as a physical performance measure of patients with back pain, and shown to be reliable, valid and responsive to change.


Topics

  • Pain assessment
  • ICF
  • Measurement properties
  • Assessment of physical performance
  • Intervention studies of musculoskeletal conditions
  • Development and translation of assessment tools
  • SPSS, statistical analysis

Physiotherapist, dr. philos., associate professor in physiotherapy science.

Research related to intervention studies of physiotherapy, habilitation and rehabilitation in musculoskeletal and neurological conditions.

Development and examination of measurement properties of assessment tools, particulary related to pain, functioning and disability.

 

 

 

Present research involves

1) examination of responsiveness to clinically relevant change of 10 physical performance tests used in patients with back pain,

2) validation of WHO's ICF core set of patients with back pain, and

3) exploration of possible functional aspects that contribute to scores on the Patient Global Impression of Change after treatment.

These studies are undertaken in colloboration with Bodil Anderson and Jan Sture Skouen (Haukeland University Hospital), Hildegunn Lygrem (Bergen University College), Liv Heide Magnussen (University of Bergen), Raymond Ostelo (VU University Amsterdam).
