abstract = "PURPOSE: The Short Musculoskeletal Function Assessment (SMFA) questionnaire can be used to evaluate physical functioning in patients with traumatic injuries. It is not known what change in score reflects a meaningful change to patients. The aim was to determine minimal important change (MIC) values of the subscales (0-100) of the Dutch SMFA-NL in a sample of patients with a broad range of injuries.METHODS: Patients between 18 and 65 years of age completed the SMFA-NL and the Global Rating of Effect (GRE) questions at 6-week and 12-month post-injury. Anchor-based MIC values were calculated using univariable logistic regression analyses.RESULTS: A total of 225 patients were included (response rate 67{\%}). The MIC value of the Upper Extremity Dysfunction (UED) subscale was 8 points, with a misclassification rate of 43{\%}. The Lower Extremity Dysfunction subscale MIC value was 14 points, with a misclassification rate of 29{\%}. The MIC value of the Problems with Daily Activities subscale was 25 points, with a misclassification rate of 33{\%}. The MIC value of the Mental and Emotional Problems (MEP) subscale was 7 points, with a misclassification rate 37{\%}.CONCLUSION: MIC values of the SMFA-NL were determined. The MIC values aid interpreting whether a change in physical functioning can be considered clinically important. Due to the considerable rates of misclassification, the MIC values of the UED and MEP subscales should be used with caution.",
