Objective To explore the effect of stigma on social participation in community-dwelling Chinese patients with stroke sequelae. Design A cross-sectional survey study. Setting The study was conducted in two community centres in Tianjin, China. Subjects Community-dwelling Chinese patients with stroke sequelae. Measures Chinese version of Stigma Scale for Chronic Illness, Chinese version of Impact on Participation and Autonomy, Modified Barthel index, Self-Rating Depression Scale, Social Support Rating Scale, Medical Coping Modes Questionnaire, background and disease-related questions. Pearson’s correlation coefficients were computed between stigma and social participation. The impact of stigma on social participation was estimated by hierarchical multiple regression analysis after controlling for demographic, physical and psychosocial characteristics. Results In total, 136 patients with stroke sequelae were included in this study, with a mean age of 67.8 years. The Chinese version of the Stigma Scale for Chronic Illness had a mean score of 48.4 (SD 16.9), and the Chinese version of the Impact on Participation and Autonomy was 67.1 (SD 21.1). Significant correlations were found between stigma and social participation. Pearson’s correlation coefficient ranged from 0.354 to 0.605 ( P < 0.01). Enacted stigma provided a significant explanation for the variance of social participation by 1.1% ( P < 0.05). Felt stigma provided a significant explanation for the variance of social participation by 2.9% ( P < 0.001). Conclusion Felt stigma and enacted stigma have independent associations with social participation. Patients with stroke sequelae who reported higher stigma experienced a lower level of social participation.

Background and PurposeFear of cancer recurrence (FCR) is a frequent psychological adverse effect among cancer survivors. This study aimed to test the psychometric properties of the Traditional Chinese version of the 12-item Fear of Progression Questionnaire-Short Form (FoP-Q-SF).MethodsAn online survey was conducted with 311 cancer survivors in Hong Kong. The factor structure, known-group validity, and internal consistency reliability were examined.ResultsThe values measuring validity is good, with acceptable goodness-of-fit indexes (RMSEA = 0.073, SRMR = 0.042, CFI = 0.954), moderate to large correlations with unmet needs (0.339.0.816), being female, younger, had completed treatment ≤ 2 years, and had undergone chemotherapy/radiotherapy scored significantly higher on the FoP-Q-SF. The Cronbach’s alpha of the scale was .922.ConclusionsHigh validity and reliability indicate the scale’s value in assessing FCR in Hong Kong cancer survivors.

ObjectiveThe limited existing asthma control questionnaires that are available for children 5 years of age or younger in China mostly assess only the impairment domain of asthma control. Here, the English version of the Test for Respiratory and Asthma Control in Kids (TRACK) was translated into Chinese and validated for its application in asthma control in preschool children.DesignProspective validation study.Setting and participantsA total of 321 Chinese preschool children suffering from asthma completed the study from December 2017 to February 2018.MethodThe TRACK translation into Chinese employed the translation and back translation technique. The caregivers of the preschool children with asthma symptoms completed TRACK during two clinical visits over 4–6 weeks. Moreover, the physicians completed a Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA)-based asthma control survey at both visits. The utility of TRACK for assessing the change in asthma control status and its reliability and discriminant validity were evaluated.ResultsThe Chinese version of TRACK showed internal consistency reliability values of 0.63 and 0.71 at each visit, respectively (Cronbach’s α). The test–retest reliability was 0.62 for individuals whose GINA-based assessment results were the same at both visits (n=206). The TRACK scores for the children in the various asthma control categories were significantly different (p<0.001). Children recommended for increased treatment by the physicians had lower TRACK scores than those recommended for no change in treatment or decreased treatment (p<0.001).ConclusionThe study verifies the validity and reliability of the Chinese version of TRACK. Changes in the TRACK scores effectively reflected the level of asthma control in preschool children and guided further treatment strategies.Trial registration numberNCT02649803

Objective: To investigate the validity and reliability of a Chinese version of Spinal Cord Independence Measure III (SCIM III) in individuals with spinal cord injury. Design: Study on psychometric properties. Setting: An inpatient rehabilitation facility in China. Subjects: 102 participants with spinal cord injury. Mean (SD) age was 48.8 (15.6) years; tetraplegia/paraplegia ratio was 50/52; median time post injury was 2 months. Intervention: SCIM III was translated into Chinese. Chinese versions of Barthel Index and SCIM III were filled out for each participant by Rater 1. SCIM III was then administered by Rater 2 after 24 hours ( n = 67) and 7 days ( n = 65). Main Measures: Validity, inter-rater/test-retest reliability, and internal consistency of the Chinese version of SCIM III. Results: The total scores between the two raters were similar (mean ± SD: 33.8 ± 25.8 vs 33.8 ± 25.5, P = 0.95). Total agreement between the raters in each item was >80%, with both Pearson and intraclass correlation coefficients >0.97 ( P < 0.01) for each subscale and total score. The Pearson correlation coefficients of the two independent assessments performed by Rater 2 were also >0.97 ( P < 0.01) for each subscale and the total score. Cronbach α was >0.7 for each subscale and the total score for both raters. High consistency was found between Barthel Index and SCIM III total scores (Pearson correlation coefficient = 0.88, P < 0.01). Conclusion: The Chinese version of SCIM III is valid and reliable for the functional assessment of patients with SCI.
