Summary
"Measuring Health provides in-depth reviews of over 100 of the leading health measurement tools and serves as a guide for choosing among them. Now in its third edition, this book provides a critical overview of the field of health measurement, with a technical introduction and discussion of the history and future directions for the field. This latest edition updates the information on each of the measures previously reviewed and includes a complete new chapter on anxiety measurement to accompany the one on depression. The author has also added new instruments to those previously reviewed in each chapter of the book." "Each chapter presents a tabular comparison of the quality of the instruments reviewed, followed by a detailed description of each method, covering its purpose and conceptual basis, its reliability and validity, and where possible, each chapter shows a copy of the actual scale."--BOOK JACKET
