Acceptability of the tuberculosis service : scale development.
Health workers require reliable, easily administered and scored measures to evaluate acceptability of a health service.
A 13-item attitude scale was developed to determine acceptability of the tuberculosis (TB) service.
The objectives of this study were to: ascertain reliability (internal consistency) of the scale and confirm, through factor analysis, that acceptability of the TB service was based on cognitive and affective reactions.
The sample comprised 487 black adult interviewees (67 TB patients on ambulatory therapy and 420 non-TB community members) from two urban townships in the Transvaal, South Africa.
The reliability coefficient revealed a high level of internal consistency for the scale (r=0.84).
