The Fibromyalgia (FM) Impact Questionnaire [FIQ], a Swedish translation of a new tool for evaluation of the FM patient

  [ 106 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • February 15, 1995


The American Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQ) was translated
into Swedish. The FIQ is a brief 10-item self-administered
instrument designed to evaluate the special problems bothering
fibromyalgia patients. After the translation procedure, 73
Swedish women fibromyalgia patients answered the translated
FIQ. The questionnaire was fast and simple to handle both for
the patients and the investigators. There was a good level of
correspondence between FIQ items and related items in the
Health Assessment Questionnaire, the Nottingham Health Profile
and the Psychological General Well-Being Index. There were no
significant differences in a test-retest analysis. The study
has provided evidence that the translated and slightly
modified Swedish version of the American Fibromyalgia Impact
Questionnaire has the validity and sensitivity to be able to
function as a relevant and comprehensible tool to monitor
FMS-patients.
