Description

The Behavior and Symptom Identification Scale, BASIS-32®, is a 32 item behavioral health assessment tool that measures how patients feel before and after receiving care.

Abstract

Alpha coefficients for BASIS-32 subscales scored as follows: relation to self/others, 0.89; depression/anxiety, 0.87; daily living/role functioning, 0.88; impulsive/addictive behavior, 0.65; psychosis, 0.66. Full-scale reliability for all 32 items was 0.95. For construct validity, mental health dimensions of the SF-36 were highly correlated with BASIS-32 dimensions (rs range from -.35 to -.70); mixed physical/mental health dimensions of the SF-36 were moderately correlated with BASIS-32 dimensions (rs range from -.27 to-.54), and physical health dimensions of the SF-36 were least correlated with BASIS-32 dimensions (rs range from-.21 to -.38).
