ABSTRACT

ObjectivesThe aim of this study was to develop a standard tool of pattern identification for Knee Osteoarthritis, which will be applied to clinical research.MethodsThe advisor committee for this study was organized by 11 panel of experts (Korean Rehabilitation Medicine professors, Acupuncture and Moxibustion professors be-longing to Korean Medicine colleges, Principal Researcher of Korea Institute of Oriental Medicine, Doctor of Korean medicine). The pattern identifications and symptoms for this tool were extracted from published Korean and Chinese literature. Through the discussion among internal experts and consultation from advisors, the Instrument on Pattern Identifications for Knee Osteoarthritis was developed.Results1) Five pattern identifications (The Wind, Chill, and Moisture, The Moist-Heat, Blood Stasis, Yang Deficiency of Spleen and Kidney, Yin Deficiency of Liver and Kidney) were set for the tool. 2) The mean weights which represent the importance of each symp-tom and scored on a hundred-point scale was obtained. 3) The Instrument on Pattern Identifications for Knee Osteoarthritis was designed in the self-reporting format composed of 46 questions.ConclusionsThe Instrument on Pattern Identifications for Knee Osteoarthritis was cre-ated through this study. Though this study is not proved about validity, reliability, the instru-ment of pattern identification for Knee Osteoarthritis is meaningful and expected to be ap-plied to the subsequent.
