The Psychometric Properties of the Swedish Version of the EB Process Assessment Scale
Nyström, Siv; Åhsberg, Elizabeth
Research on Social Work Practice, v26 n4 p412-418 Jul 2016
Objective: This study examines whether the psychometric properties of the short version of the Evidence-Based Practice Process Assessment Scale (EBPPAS) remain satisfactory when translated and transferred to the context of Swedish welfare services. Method: The Swedish version of EBPPAS was tested on a sample of community-based professionals in social care services and health care services (n = 710). Internal consistency, test-retest reliability (n = 95), and the factor structure were examined. Results: The findings support the scale's reliability. Both a values and test-retest coefficients were satisfactory or excellent for the entire scale and for each of its four sections. A four-component structure was achieved. Thus, the results are consistent with previous research on the EBPPAS. Conclusion: The study provides support for the EBPPAS, short version, to be used in evaluating EBP implementation efforts in Sweden.
