Blood Pressure Awareness Scale and Insight Scale (BASIS)

Brief Description: Our researchers have developed a novel and easy-to-administer self-report measure of illness awareness in hypertension, a condition attributed to individuals with metabolic syndrome. The measure assesses the core domains of illness awareness, including awareness of need for treatment. With 10-point Likert scales for each item, this scale has the capacity to detect small changes in illness awareness and need for treatment scores. The tool provides a set of questions specific to blood pressure that are within the niche of understanding patient awareness of their illness, as well as a screening mechanism to determine which patients are most suitable for medication adherence programs or intervention. See the detailed summary.


Glucose Awareness Scale and Insight Scale (GAS)

Brief Description: Our researchers have developed a novel and easy-to-administer self-report measure of illness awareness in diabetes, a condition attributed to individuals with metabolic syndrome. The measure assesses the core domains of illness awareness, including awareness of need for treatment. With 10-point Likert scales for each item, this scale has the capacity to detect small changes in illness awareness and need for treatment scores. The tool provides a set of questions specific to diabetes that are within the niche of understanding patient awareness of their illness, as well as a screening mechanism to determine which patients are most suitable for medication adherence programs or intervention. See the detailed summary.


Obesity Awareness Scale and Insight Scale (OASIS)

Brief Description: Our researchers have developed a novel and easy-to-administer self-report measure of illness awareness in obesity, a condition attributed to individuals with metabolic syndrome. The measure assesses the core domains of illness awareness, including awareness of need for treatment. With 10-point Likert scales for each item, this scale has the capacity to detect small changes in illness awareness and need for treatment scores. The tool provides a set of questions specific to overweight or obesity that are within the niche of understanding patient awareness of their illness, as well as a screening mechanism to determine which patients are most suitable for medication adherence programs or intervention. See the detailed summary.


Psychosis Insight Assessment Scale

Brief Description: Our researchers have developed an easy to administer schizophrenia insight scale. The scale features both self-reported and clinician-rated versions that would be sensitive to small changes in insight over brief periods of time. Additionally, the scale would be able to assess the multidimensionality of insight. A 10 item self-report (VAGUS-SR) and a 5 item clinician-rated version (VAGUS-CR) of the scale were designed, based on previously validated scales, to measure the dimensions of insight into psychosis. Both scales are efficient, each taking approximately 5 minutes to administer/complete. Click here to read more or visit the VAGUS scale website.​​​​​
