MODENUTTE, Gabriela de Souza; MARTINS, Jaqueline; HOTTA, Gisele Harumi  and  OLIVEIRA, Anamaria Siriani de. Intra- and inter-rater reliability of the Individual Lifestyle Profile (ILP) questionnaire for individuals with musculoskeletal pain. Fisioter. Pesqui. [online]. 2019, vol.26, n.1, pp.71-77. ISSN 2316-9117.

The aim of this study was to test all the reliability properties of the Individual Lifestyle Profile (ILP) in patients with musculoskeletal pain. A total of 105 patients with musculoskeletal pain participated in this study after being recruited from a public secondary physical therapy care. ILP was applied by Rater 1 at the initial assessment and by Rater 2 after one hour. After three to seven days of the initial assessment, Rater 1 reapplied ILP. ILP and its components showed internal consistency from 0.27 to 0.61 and intra- and inter-rater reliability values from moderate to excellent (ICC=0.68 to 0.90) and from moderate to almost perfect (K=0.59 to 0.83). Percent agreement was 61% to 98%, the SEM of ILP was 4.1 points and the MDC was 5.7 points. We conclude that ILP is a reliable instrument to assess the lifestyle of patients with musculoskeletal pain.
