Abstract

The '24-Hour Functional Ability Questionnaire' (24hFAQ) was developed to measure final recovery and satisfaction 24 h after surgery. We used structured interviews preoperatively to measure baseline patient concerns, and up to 24 h after discharge, to assess patient function and satisfaction. The primary objective was to assess the validity of the newly developed 24hFAQ in the postoperative outpatient setting. The criteria assessed were 1) Content: comparison with expert opinion and patients' views and response frequency distributions for asymptotes and irrelevance, 2) Construct: contribution of cognitive, physical, and satisfaction domains to postoperative functional ability, 3) Discrimination: comparing mean clinical end points with patient satisfaction, and 4) Criterion (predictive) validity: testing that related constructs are best correlated. Content validity was supported by the appropriate frequency distribution of subject responses, by the lack of floor or ceiling effects, and by
