- Health-related Quality of Life (HRQoL), RAND 36-Item Health Survey [ Time Frame: 3 months ]The RAND 36-Item Health Survey is a set of generic, coherent, and easily administered health-related quality of life (HRQoL) measures. It explores eight health concepts: physical functioning, bodily pain, role limitations due to physical health problems, role limitations due to personal or emotional problems, emotional well-being, social functioning, energy/fatigue, and general health perceptions. It also includes a single item that provides an indication of perceived change in health. A high score defines a more favorable health state. In addition, each item is scored on a 0 to 100 range. The lowest and highest possible scores are 0 and 100, respectively. Scores represent the percentage of total possible score achieved.
- Depressive symptoms, Patient Health Questionnaire-8 (PHQ-8) [ Time Frame: 3 months ]Patient health questionnaire-8 (PHQ-8) (Kroenke, Spitzer, & Williams, 2001) is a multipurpose instrument for screening, diagnosing, monitoring and measuring the severity of depression. The PHQ-8 incorporates DSM-IV depression diagnostic criteria with other leading major depressive symptoms into a brief self-report tool. PHQ-8 is brief and useful in clinical practice. The PHQ-8 is completed by the patient in minutes and is rapidly scored by the clinician. The PHQ-8 is a freely available mood-rating questionnaire consisting of nine questions mirroring DSM-IV depression diagnostic criteria. The PHQ-8 has shown diagnostic validity in a study of 3,000 adult patients. Each item is rated on a scale of 0 to 3, giving a maximum score of 24. Cut-off scores are used to label depression severity as: 0 to 4, minimal depression; 5 to 9, mild depression; 10 to 14, moderate depression; 15 to 19, moderately severe depression; 20 to 24, severe depression.
- Anxiety symptoms, Generalized Anxiety Disorder-7 (GAD-7) [ Time Frame: 3 months ]GAD-7 is a 7-item anxiety scale. It has good reliability, as well as criterion, construct, factorial, and procedural validity. Each item is rated according to the frequency of the described problem. The responses are scored as follows: 0 = not at all, 1 = several days, 2 = more than half the days, 3 = nearly every day with a maximum score of 21 Scores are interpreted as 5 to 9, mild anxiety; 10 to 14, moderate anxiety; and 15 and above, severe anxiety. The GAD-7 showed good reliability and criterion, construct, factorial, and procedural validity in a study carried out in 15 primary care clinics. The GAD-7 is a valid and efficient tool for screening for GAD and assessing its severity in clinical practice and research.
- Therapeutic Relationship, Working Alliance Inventory (WAI) [ Time Frame: 3 months ]Working Alliance Inventory (WAI) (Horvath and Greenberg 1986) is used to measure the service user-psychiatrist relationship from the service user perspective. The Working Alliance Inventory-Short Version (WAI-S) is based upon Bordins three-factor conceptualization of the provider and client relationship: collaboration on tasks, collaboration on goals and the bond between the client and therapist. Coefficient alphas for the WAI-S three subscales have ranged from 0.85 to 0.92. Patients rate items on a 5-point Likert scale anchored at each end with 'rarely or never' (1) and 'always' (5). The Goal, Task and Bond domains each have scores ranging from 5 to 20. Higher scores indicate a better therapeutic alliance. The WAI-S was highly correlated to the California Psychotherapy Alliance Scale and the Penn Helping Alliance Interview Schedule.
