Abstract [en]

Objectives : The STarT Back Screening Tool (SBT) is a newly validated questionnaire that identifies modifiable risk factors of poor prognosis in patients with low back pain (LBP). The aim of this study was to cross-culturally adapt the SBT into Swedish and to test its concurrent validity in patients with LBP in primary healthcare.

Methods: The SBT was translated according to established guidelines. Concurrent validity was tested on 62 patients by comparing the SBT with the Orebro Musculoskeletal Pain Screening Questionnaire, short form (OMPSQ-short). Analysis of correlations between the instruments' total scores and between psychosocial sub-score of SBT and OMPSQ-short was performed using Spearman's rank correlation.

Results: A translation of the SBT into Swedish required minor semantic adaptation until the final version was acceptable. Correlation between the SBT and the OMPSQ-short was large with r = 0.61 (SBT total with OMPSQ-short total score) and r = 0.60 (SBT psychosocial subscale with OMPSQ-short total score).

Conclusion: The original SBT was successfully translated into Swedish. Correlation between the Swedish SBT and OMPSQ- short was large. The present study supports the use of the Swedish SBT for further clinical practice and research.
