In this study, a self-report measure of intervention usage, the Usage Rating Profile for Interventions (URP-I) is developed and empirically examined with regard to factor structure and internal consistency. Results supported that intervention usage is associated with at least 4 different constructs, and that a measure consisting of 25 items may provide a reliable index of the 4 factors. The 4 factors identified included Acceptability, Knowledge, Feasibility, and Integrity. Findings extend and integrate existing work-related items to acceptability research aimed at predicting usage. Implications, limitations, and future directions are discussed. (Contains 4 tables.)
