Abstract:

<p><b>OBJECTIVES: </b>This systematic review documents the content and the quality of the psychometric evidence concerning the utilization of the Community Integration Questionnaire for individuals living with a disability other than a traumatic brain injury.</p><p><b>DATA SOURCES: </b>Medline, Embase, CINAHL, OTseeker and PsycINFO (searched from inception to June 2019).</p><p><b>REVIEW METHODS: </b>Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses guidelines were used for conducting and reporting this review. Studies that investigated at least one psychometric property of the Community Integration Questionnaire for individuals living with a disability other than traumatic brain injury were included. Data extraction and critical methodological appraisal of the articles (MacDermid checklist, COnsensus-based Standards for the selection of health Measurement INstruments checklist) were independently performed and validated by the first two authors.</p><p><b>RESULTS: </b>Ten studies representing 3000 individuals met the inclusion criteria. Five populations were documented. There are positive and trustable data regarding internal consistency for adults living with multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury or burns and in mixed samples ( = 0.71-0.84). Construct validity is fairly documented for adults living with multiple sclerosis or aphasia and in mixed samples. Test-retest reliably is acceptable for adults living with multiple sclerosis (intraclass correlation coefficient = 0.91-0.97) as well as responsiveness (area under the receiver operating characteristic curve = 0.81). Other psychometric properties could not be demonstrated sufficiently solid.</p><p><b>CONCLUSION: </b>Many psychometric properties of the Community Integration Questionnaire are still poorly evaluated for adults living with a disability other than a traumatic brain injury. However, promising data have been documented in each population included in this review.</p>
