A theory-based reproductive health and diabetes instrument.
Am J Health Behav. 2006 Mar-Apr; 30(2):208-20.AJ

Abstract

OBJECTIVES

To determine psychometric properties of scales within the theoretically based Reproductive Health Attitudes and Behavior (RHAB) instrument for examining preconception planning of young women with diabetes. Scales represented constructs from 3 social cognition models that can influence reproductive health behavior.

METHODS

Psychometrics were examined on data from a telephone interview on this 48-item instrument using a sample of 87 female adolescents with diabetes from 4 medical centers.

RESULTS

Overall, the major factors (scales) clustered according to theoretical underpinning. Most Cronbach alphas were moderate (.60-.83).

CONCLUSIONS

RHAB appears to have acceptable levels of validity/reliability for use with female adolescents with diabetes.
