ABSTRACT

Objective This study was devised to create a new diagnosis and an assessment index by Soeumin’s Ordinary Symptoms. Method First, a Working Committee and an Advisory Committee were formed for development, and the development goals were set. Then, the Soeumin’s disease diagnosis indicators were extracted from the previous Clinical Practice Guidelines for Sasang Constitutional Medicine. To increase the clinical applicability, the extracted diagnosis indicators were focused on ordinary symptoms, and translated into Korean. The translated diagnosis and assessment indicators for Soeumin were surveyed to the Advisory Committee using the Delphi technique, and the inclusion, importance, and validity of each indicator were investigated accordingly. Result The translated diagnosis and assessment indicators were finally revised based on the surveyed inclusion and translation validity opinions, and the weight of each indicator was set based on the investigated importance, and a draft of the diagnosis and assessment index was developed. Conclusion This developed index can help to make effective diagnose about Soeumin’s diseases by clinical doctor. In the future, a clinical study of this index can be conducted to consider the reliability, validity, and cut-point, and through this process, the actual clinical applicability will be improved.
