This paper describes the development and evaluation of a brief, multidimensional, self-administered, social support survey that was developed for patients in the Medical Outcomes Study (MOS), a two-year study of patients with chronic conditions.
This survey was designed to be comprehensive in terms of recent thinking about the various dimensions of social support.
In addition, it was designed to be distinct from other related measures.
We present a summary of the major conceptual issues considered when choosing items for the social support battery, describe the items, and present findings based on data from 2987 patients (ages 18 and older).
