Measuring health status among survivors of burn injury : revisions of the burn specific health scale.
This study examined the reliability of a revised version of the Burn Specific Health Scale (BSHS).
Two hundred fifty-four former patients recruited from eight burn centers in the southeastern United States participated in the study.
Data were collected via chart review and mailed questionnaire.
Factor analyses were used to identify seven subecales containing a total of 31 items.
Subsequent analyses provided strong support for the reliability and validity of the revised measure.
Each subscale exhibited a high level of reliability (Cronbach's alpha ranged from 0.82 to 0.84).
Each subscale also correlated in a predictable manner with measures used for validation.
