What Is It?
During a recent meet-up event in Calgary, Debbie Patterson shed some light onto fibromyalgia and the role physiotherapy can have. During her presentation, one objective measure that she highlighted was the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQR). The FIQR is a questionnaire used to evaluate function, overall impact and symptoms in patients with fibromyalgia. For more information on the questionnaire, click here.
With good psychometric properties and the ability to be completed in less than 2 minutes, this outcome measure is a feasible and useful tool to measure pre and post outcomes in patients with fibromyalgia.
