Using Chinese Version of MYMOP in Chinese Medicine Evaluation: Validity, Responsiveness and Minimally Important Change.
Although a total of 107 women presented with a condition suitable for MYMOP collection, there was a high number of incomplete and incorrect forms.
Of the 45 completed MYMOP forms, 36 (80%) had a profile score that reduced by more than one point, which can be seen as clinically significant--that is, representing a change that is of importance to those women.
Although the use of MYMOP to determine a profile score only reveals the woman's perception of any improvement, it does provide the opportunity to assess how women perceive acupuncture within a clinical care environment.
As there was no control group to compare findings for the MYMOP scores, these scores only reflect the women's personal satisfaction and it is possible that these scores were influenced by confounding factors, such as time to rest, attention paid, and desire to please the acupuncturist.
Note-se que o valor para P3 na segunda aplicacao do Mymop e muito baixo, o que e positivo, mesmo em se tratando de um novo sintoma.
Ao comparar o questionario dos oito participantes do Grupo 1 que responderam as duas aplicacoes do MYMOP e possivel registrar seus perfis nos dois momentos.
O perfil dos nove participantes do Grupo 2 apresenta uma diferenca significativa entre as aplicacoes do Mymop. Podemos observar que, na segunda aplicacao, o pior valor atribuido e proximo de quatro para o participante P5 e para os demais oito houve melhora relevante no perfil.
Neste sentido, o trabalho realizado por meio do programa "Yoga e Promocao da Saude" buscou aferir as repercussoes da pratica no participante, focadas, inicialmente, na gradacao dos sintomas e do bem-estar autodeclarados no instrumento adaptado do MYMOP.
