Modified Attitudes to Psychiatry Scale Created Using Principal-Components Analysis

Rohit Shankar, MRCPsych; Richard Laugharne, FRCPsych; Colin Pritchard, Ph.D.; Pallavi Joshi, M.D.; Romika Dhar, M.D.
Academic Psychiatry 2011;35:360-364.

Objective:
The Attitudes to Psychiatry Scale (APS) is a tool used to assess medical students' attitudes toward psychiatry. This study sought to examine the internal validity of the APS in order to identify dimensions within the questionnaire.

Conclusion:
On examining the APS scale using principal-components analysis, the authors found clusters of questions around four themes that do seem intuitively relevant for attitudes toward psychiatry. They are not the same as Balon et al. 's original subscales, although there are similarities. Using the questions in the emerging themes, the authors have suggested a modified questionnaire that appears to have good internal validity.
