A Comparison of Scales for Assessing Rehabilitation Patients

  • Robin G. McCreadie (a1), James W. Affleck (a2), Yvonne McKenzie (a1) and Andrew D. T. Robinson (a1)

Extract

Twenty-four chronic schizophrenic patients were assessed by the Morningside Rehabilitation Status Scale, the Krawiecka Scale, and the Social Adjustment Scale by Self-Report. Inter-rater correlations suggest that the MRSS can be used by a rater with little previous knowledge of the patient. Between-scale correlations suggest the three scales assess somewhat different dimensions. A standard approach to rehabilitation assessment is suggested.
