Context: Documented barriers to implementation of patient-reported outcome instruments (PROs) in practice include administration and scoring time. The Quick Foot and Ankle Ability Measure (Quick-FAAM) was developed to decrease these barriers; however, the clinometric properties in an acute population are unknown. Purpose: To determine the internal consistency, validity, and the floor and ceiling effects of the Quick-FAAM in patients seeking treatment for an acute or subacute ankle or foot health condition. Study Design: Cross-Sectional. Setting: Healthcare facilities.Patients: 50 patients (20.3 ± 2.2 y, 177.9 ± 10.7 cm, 80 ± 19.4 kg) seeking treatment for an acute or subacute ankle or foot condition. Main Outcome Measures: Each patient completed a demographic and health-history questionnaire followed by 5 PROs: the Quick-FAAM, the FAAM-Activities of Daily Living (ADL), FAAM-Sport, the modified Disablement in the Physically Active Scale (mDPA), the Short-Form 12 (SF-12) and the PROMISv1.2 Physical Function (PROMIS-PF). Cronbach alpha was used to determine internal consistency and Spearman’s rank correlations were performed to examine the relationship between the Quick-FAAM and all other outcomes. Results: The Quick-FAAM was very strongly correlated with the FAAM-Total (r = .91, r 2 = .83, P < .001), FAAM-ADL (r = .83, r 2 = .69, P < .001), FAAM-Sport (r = .89, r 2 = .79, P < .001), SF12-Physical Component Score (PCS, r = .74, r 2 = .55, P < .001), mDPA-PCS (r = -.83, r 2 = .69, P < .001) and PROMIS PF (r = .85, r 2 = .72, P < .001). There was a weak or no relationship with the SF12-Mental Component Score (MCS, r = .04, r 2 = .00, P < .001) and the mDPA-MCS (r = -.35, r 2 = .12, P < .001). A total of 8% (n = 4) of the patients scored a 0, and 2% (n = 1) patients scored a 48. Conclusion: The Quick-FAAM demonstrated good convergent and divergent validity along with good internal consistency. There was no evidence of a floor or ceiling effect. Therefore, the Quick-FAAM should be considered for use in practice when determining treatment effectiveness for patients with acute or subacute ankle or foot health conditions. Future research should determine the test-retest reliability and the minimal detectable change of this instrument.

-reported data on physical function from individuals recovering from an acute cardiac event ( Jette & Downing, 1994 ; Pepin, Alexander, & Phillips, 2004 ). In addition, physical capacity appears to be associated with the type of treatment, as patients receiving cardiac surgery typically have lower exercise

The percentage of participants with low physical function (SPPB ≤9), based on criteria by Guralnik, Ferrucci, Simonsick, Salive, and Wallace ( 1995 ), was calculated from the results of the SPPB.

The lack of items from the MARS is interesting, considering that physical activity is a component of physical function. 15 Each of the MARS items assesses general physical activity level of patients. While physical activity is a component of physical function, the lack of knee-specific information
