The Patient Perspective Survey (PPS): a new tool to improve consultation outcome and patient involvement in general practice patients with complex health problems. Psychometric testing and development of a final version



Patient Education and Counseling 52(2): 201-207



The Patient Perspective Survey (PPS) is designed to enhance consultation outcome and patient participation among general practice patients with complex health problems. This article presents the final version of the survey. This version is more condensed, tested for psychometric and clinical properties, and with increased emphasis on coping. The development and testing was performed in two phases with two groups of GPs and patients. Indications for use and criteria for rejection of items were defined, based on comprehensive data analysis and clinical judgement. The number of items was reduced to 38 items. The majority of diagnoses were related to psychosocial or musculoskeletal disorders. For the survey's main dimensions (psychological and somatic items, everyday life situation and coping) sound psychometric properties were identified. Seven open-ended questions were found useful for obtaining important new information and stimulating processes, often related to coping aspects. The revised 38-item PPS represents a condensed and final version, with increased focus on coping, and sound psychometric properties.
