Abstract

Patient-reported outcome measures can improve the management of patients with non-specific neck pain. The choice of measure greatly depends on its content and psychometric properties. Most questionnaires were developed for English-speaking people, and need to undergo cross-cultural validation for use in different language contexts. To help Italian clinicians select the most appropriate tool, we systematically reviewed the validated Italian-language outcome measures for non-specific neck pain, and analyzed their psychometric properties and clinical utility. The search was performed in MEDLINE, EMBASE, CINAHL, Scopus, Web of Science, and Cochrane Library. All articles published in English or Italian regarding the development, translation, or validation of patient-reported outcome measures available in the Italian language were included. Two reviewers independently selected the studies, extracted data, and assessed methodological quality using the COSMIN checklist. Out of 4891articles screened, 66 were eligible. Overall, they were of poor or fair methodological quality. Four instruments measuring function and disability (Neck Disability Index, Neck Pain and Disability Scale, Neck Bournemouth Questionnaire, and Core Outcome Measures Index), and one measuring activity-related fear of movement (NeckPix©) were identified. Each scale showed some psychometric weaknesses or problems with functioning, and none emerged as a gold standard. Several patient-reported outcome measures are now available for assessing Italian people with non-specific neck pain. While the Neck Disability Index is the one most widely used, the Neck Bournemouth Questionnaire appears the most promising tool from a psychometric point of view.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 03 August 2016.
All research outputs
#3,516,753
of 8,160,820 outputs
Outputs from Archives of Physiotherapy
#11
of 26 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#104,273
of 258,078 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Archives of Physiotherapy
#2
of 5 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 8,160,820 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 55th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 26 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 6.8. This one scored the same or higher as 15 of them.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 258,078 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 57% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 5 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 3 of them.
