  Beliefs About Voices Questionnaire (BAVQ) - Amended

The BAVQ assessed beliefs about voices. It consists of 30 items and 5 sub-scales: Benevolence, Malevolence, Resistance, Engagement and Power.

The original BAVQ (Chadwick and Birchwood, 1995) treated individual items as dichotomous variables and required a "yes" or "no" response. In this adaptation of the questionnaire a four point scale is used as follows:
Never = 0, Seldom = 1, Often = 2, Almost Always = 3

Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS) - Short Version

This scale was developed as a basic screening measure for depression in older adults. Suitable as a screening test for depressive symptoms in the elderly. Ideal for evaluating the clinical severity of depression, and therefore for monitoring treatment.

It is easy to administer, needs no prior psychiatric knowledge and has been well validated in many environments - home and clinical.

The original GDS was a 30 item questionnaire - time consuming and challenging for some patients (and staff). Later versions retain only the most discriminating questions; their validity approaches that of the original form. the most common version in general geriatric practice is the 15-item version.

Health of the Nation Outcomes Scales (HoNOS)

Development and testing over three years resulted in an instrument with 12 items measuring behaviour, impairment, symptoms and social functioning. The scales are completed after routine clinical assessments in any setting and have a variety of uses for clinicians, researchers and administrators, in particular healthcare purchasers and providers.
