  1. Short screening scale for DSM-IV posttraumatic stress disorder.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    The authors'goal was to construct a short screening scale for DSM-IV posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

    Method 

    They used data from the Detroit Area Survey of Trauma, which is a representative population sample of 2,181 subjects 18-45 years of age.

    Random digit dialing was used to select the sample, and a computer-assisted telephone interview was used to collect data on traumatic experiences and PTSD.

    Presence or absence of PTSD was assessed with a telephone-administered structured interview that closely followed the National Institute of Mental Health Diagnostic Interview Schedule for DSM-IV and the World Health Organization Composite International Diagnostic Interview, version 2.1. Best-subset regression analysis and receiver operating characteristic analysis were used to select a subset of items from the structured interview that most efficiently predicted PTSD as diagnosed in the full-length interview.

    Results 

    A seven-symptom screening scale for PTSD was selected ; five of the symptoms were from the avoidance and numbing group, and two were from the hyperarousal group.

    A score of 4 or greater on this scale defined positive cases of PTSD with a sensitivity of 80%, specificity of 97%, positive predictive value of 71%, and negative predictive value of 98%. Conclusions : The short screening scale is an efficient method to screen for PTSD in epidemiologic and clinical studies, given limitations on resources and burden on respondents.
