Barthel indeks til vurdering af funktionsevne: Dansk konsensus om brug

Thomas Maribo, Jens Lauritsen, Eva Waehrens, Ingrid Poulsen, Bjørn Hesselbo


The Barthel Index is widely used in the evaluation of function. In Denmark at least three versions are used without a consensus of their specific formulation. The term ''Modified Barthel Index'' is used for several versions. A Barthel Index score without version has no meaning since a maximum score in one version indicates very poor function in another. This paper describes the proper usage of the Barthel Index and suggests the terminology ''Barthel-20'' and ''Barthel-100'' for the recommended versions published by Collin et al and Shah et al. The number after ''Barthel-'' indicates the maximum score.
