The Coping Styles Questionnaire for Social Situations

The Coping Styles Questionnaire for Social Situations (CSQSS) was developed based on Miller's (1987) conceptualization of how individual's cope with threat-related information by seeking out information (monitoring) or distracting (blunting) and focuses on situations that are relevant to individuals with social anxiety disorder. The CSQSS presents six stressful situations that are related to interacting with others, being the center of attention or being judged by others. Each situation has three monitoring and three blunting coping responses. Total score on the monitoring subscale...

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).

Positive and Negative Ex-Relationship Thoughts (PANERT) scale

People often think about their relationship after it ends. Previously, most studies of romantic relationship breakups assumed that people only think about negative memories from their ex-relationship. The authors proposed that individuals also think about positive memories after a breakup, and that thinking about positive memories can also make it difficult to move on from a breakup. They created the PANERT, a 12-item measure, to examine this.

COM-B Hand Hygiene Behaviour Questionnaire

Although the hand hygiene (HH) procedure is simple, the related behaviour is complex and is not readily understood, explained, or changed. Appropriate theories of behavioural change are often not considered in the design and use of assessment tools relating to HH behaviour. The COM-B HHB questionnaire is reliable and valid and has the potential to provide data to support the development, and evaluation, of HH interventions that meet the needs of specific healthcare units.
