Fear of movement in cancer survivors: validation of the Modified Tampa Scale of Kinesiophobia--Fatigue
Velthuis MJ et al. – The adjusted 11–item Tampa Scale of Kinesiophobia–Fatigue (TSK–F) consisting of two subscales ‘somatic focus’ and ‘activity avoidance’ seems to be a robust and valid tool in measuring fear of movement in cancer survivors with an acceptable internal consistency. Further psychometric testing of the TSK–F in cancer survivors is recommended. In the future, TSK–F scores may be used to customise rehabilitation programmes in cancer survivors.
