We have developed a reliable and valid questionnaire to measure the psychological consequences of screening mammography.
The questionnaire measures the effect of screening on an individual's functioning on emotional, social, and physical life domains.
Content validity was ensured by extensive review of the relevant literature, discussion with professionals and interviews with attenders at a pilot Breast X-ray Screening Program in Melbourne, Australia.
Discriminant validity was assessed by having expert judges sort items into dimensions which they appeared to be measuring.
