Developing and validating trust measures
One scale satisfied unidimensionality, reliability, and validity criteria.
Two scales were not unidimensional and failed to discriminate from an underlying trust dimension.
Our 21-item instrument has a reliability of Cronbach's alpha of .86, and we have successfully field-tested it with a range of undergraduate college students.
We discuss implications and possible applications of the instrument, and include it in the appendix.
This first part was item reduction, using PU-QOL data from 227 patients.
The second part was reliability and validity evaluation of the item-reduced version using both Traditional and Rasch methods, on PU-QOL data from 229 patients.
We developed the Patient Measure of Collaborative Goal Setting (PM-CGS) to evaluate the use of collaborative goal setting from the patient's perspective.
Research design and methods A random sample of 400 patients aged 40 years or older, receiving diabetes care from the Virginia Commonwealth University Health System between 8/2012 and 8/2013, were mailed a survey containing potential PM-CGS items (n=44) as well as measures of patient demographics, perceived self-management competence, trust in their physician, and self-management behaviors.
Further, there are no pressure ulcer PRO instruments available.From the viewpoint of attribute the , we investigated the importance that students assigned to the following two characteristics: 1) early implementation of the promises made by the university; 2.behavior of teachers and staff that inspires trust of the students.The methodological part contains the results of a questionnaire survey conducted on a sample of 150 students of University of Zilina.The students were asked to identify the importance of certain attributes of the perfect university.
Trust in science and scientists can greatly influence consideration of scientific developments and activities.
