Background.: Primary care is an ideal setting for physical activity interventions to prevent and manage common long-term conditions. To identify those who can benefit from such interventions and to deliver tailored support, primary care professionals (e.g. GPs, practice nurses, physiotherapists, health care assistants) need reliable and valid tools to assess physical activity. However, there is uncertainty about the best-performing tool. Objective.: To identify the tools used in the literature to assess the physical activity in primary care and describe their psychometric properties...

Background: The height of the eyebrow is less crucial aesthetically than is the relationship between the lateral and medial portions of the brow. Although various surgical procedures are effective in raising the brow, the authors maintain that transcutaneous brow shaping (TBS) is the only technique that enables precise shaping of the brow and correction of minor asymmetries. Objectives: The authors described their experiences with direct TBS alone or in conjunction with blepharoplasty and facelift...

Carpal boss is a symptomatic bony protrusion on the dorsal surface of the wrist at the base of the 2nd and/or 3rd metacarpal. The goal of this study was to assess the reliability and safety of simply resecting the exostosis. From 1994 to 2014, 29 cases of carpal boss were treated by simple resection. Twenty-five of these patients were subsequently assessed by telephone questionnaire at a mean of 8 years' follow-up (range 1.1 to 20 years). There were no cases of recurrence; however, 1 patient reported carpometacarpal instability requiring fusion, 5 years after surgery...

Questionnaire development involves rigorous testing to ensure reliability and validity. Due to time and cost constraints of developing new questionnaires, researchers often adapt existing questionnaires to better fit the purpose of their study. However, the effect of such adaptations is unclear. We conducted cognitive interviews as a method to evaluate the understanding of original and adapted questionnaire items to be applied in a future study. The findings revealed that all subjects (a) comprehended the original and adapted items differently, (b) changed their scores after comparing the original to the adapted items, and (c) were unanimous in stating that the adapted items were easier to understand...
