Comparing accuracy of knowledge of functional effects of schizophrenia and brain injury
MetadataShow full item record
This study developed and validated the Brain Injury and Schizophrenia Awareness Scale (BISAS) to compare accuracy of knowledge of functional effects of schizophrenia and TBI. The BISAS displayed good internal consistency and evidence of construct validity. Overall, general community participants (n=143) lacked understanding of the shared effects of these conditions, and attributed emotional and behavioural deficits to schizophrenia and cognitive deficits to TBI.
