Clinical Trial Summary

There is a need for a culturally adapted screening tool to aid health care professionals or clinicians screen for the presence of fall and balance issues associated with injuries in saraiki population. Furthermore, while culturally adapting the scale is necessary, it is important that changes do not alter the original intent, which requires it to be broad, comprehensible and applicable to the entire population. As saraiki language is the most-used language in the South Punjab, translating and adapting the ABC scale to the saraiki population while accounting for its sociocultural characteristics is an important task. So, I decided to conduct a tool translation and validation study. This study will help the clinicians to assess their patient's confidence and balance easily through the saraiki version of ABC scale in saraiki population and hence will help in timely management of the balance.

Clinical Trial Description

The ABC scale is a 16-item questionnaire with 11-point subscales that assess the level of confidence in performing a specific task without losing balance or becoming unsteady. Each item score ranges from 0% (no confidence) to 100% (total confidence). As cross-border and cross-cultural studies continue to increase, there is a greater need for linguistic validation of tools across a variety of societies. Until now, no translation or adaptation of the ABC scale has been made for the population with different languages in Pakistan. In order to use questionnaires in areas with different languages and cultures, translation into new languages of ABC scale, for identifying fall and balance issues is required. ;
