Perceived Social Inequity Scale (PSIS-W)

The Perceived Social Inequality Scale for women (PSIS-W) is grounded in the theoretical framework of relative deprivation theory (a more specified variant of social comparison theory) which states that discontent results from recognition of an unfair discrepancy between one's own situation and that of others. Factor analyses of the PSIS-W conducted with samples of college women indicated the presence of six factors: Multiple Roles, Career Competence, Career Encouragement, Physical Appearance, Harassment/Assault, and Academic Role Models.

Quality and Safety Self-Efficacy Scale

Nursing is a caring profession, which practices alongside other disciplines. Communication amongst health care personnel has been implicated in the literature as a cause of most patient errors and sentinel events between 1995 and 2006 (American Association of Critical Care Nursing [AACN], 2005; Dillon et al., 2009; Joint Commission, 2012; Wachter, 2010; World Health Organization, 2007). The majority of nursing programs do not include interdisciplinary or collaborative educational experiences in their curricula (Lavin et al., 2001).
