The development of a scale for the measurement of apathy following brain injury

Abstract:
The investigators sought to develop a valid and reliable scale to measure apathy following brain injury. They adapted a number of apathy items from other scales, made up new items, including confounder items, categorized the items into domains, and interviewed therapists regarding the comprehensibility of the items. The next steps will be factor analysis, pilot administration by therapists, and then validity and reliability studies.
