Protocol - Physical Mobility - Hospitalized Individuals
The Youth Acute Pain Functional Ability Questionnaire (YAPFAQ) is a 12-item self-administered questionnaire, with items prompting responses on a five-point rating scale (from "Not Difficult" to "Extremely Difficult") regarding how difficult a specified task is for a hospitalized patient. This protocol was validated in hospitalized individuals aged 7- to 21-years-old.
Youth Acute Pain Functional Ability Questionnaire-Final 12 items
When people are in the hospital they sometimes are too sick or uncomfortable to do all of their normal activities. We want you to think about how difficult it would be to do these things today—not whether or not you like to do these things, or whether you did them today.
Today how difficult are these things for you to do?
Patients rate their level of difficulty performing each activity during the day using a 5-point Likert scale (0 = Not difficult, 1 = A little difficult, 2 = Somewhat difficult, 3 = Very difficult, 4 = Extremely difficult). Higher scores indicate greater difficulty performing functional activities.
Personnel and Training Required
|Specialized requirements for biospecimen collection||No|
|Average time of greater than 15 minutes in an unaffected individual||No|
Mode of Administration
Child, Adolescent, Adult
Hospitalized individuals aged 7- to 21-years-old
This protocol was validated in hospitalized individuals with sickle cell disease who were experiencing a vaso-occlusive pain episode. It is also easy to administer and can be done daily.
