Multidimensional Health Profile–Health Functioning Index (MHP-H)
From PsychWiki - A Collaborative Psychology Wiki
"This paper describes the development and preliminary validation of the Multidimensional Health Profile–Health Functioning Index (MHP-H), a 69-item self-report instrument designed to assess a variety of behaviors, perceptions, attitudes, and beliefs presumed to influence health status and the pursuit of lay and professional health care. The MHP-H briefly measures adult health history, health habits, health care utilization, health beliefs and attitudes, and response to illness (help-seeking behaviors)." "The findings detailed in the present paper, expected to provide preliminary reliability and validity data for the MHP-H, lend support to the overall utility of the instrument, and justify its use as a broadbased measurement tool capable of providing clinical professionals a snapshot of several key health care orientations."
- 69-item, self report
- "First, we note that the hypothesized factor structures for the MHP-H multi-item scales were confirmed, with CFIs ranging from .91 to .99."
- "Retest reliabilities were also generally in the good range."
