  1. BRFSS (Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System) Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Module
    Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (CDC)
    Date Published: 3/2/2016
    Format: PDF
    Annotation: The BRFSS (Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System) Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) module was adapted from the original CDC-Kaiser ACE Study and is used to collect information on child abuse and neglect, and household challenges. Childhood experiences, both positive and negative, have a tremendous impact on future violence victimization and perpetration, and lifelong health and opportunity. The ACE score, a total sum of the different categories of ACEs reported by participants, is used to assess cumulative childhood stress. Study findings repeatedly reveal a graded dose-response relationship between ACEs and negative health and well-being outcomes across the life course. This resource was identified by the NIH Disaster Research Response Program (DR2) for researchers looking for pre- and post-disaster data collection instruments.

    Date Published: 11/10/2014
    Format: Text
    Annotation: The Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scale (DASS) is a set of three self-report scales designed to measure the negative emotional states of depression, anxiety, and stress. The DASS furthers the process of defining, understanding, and measuring the ubiquitous and clinically significant emotional states usually described as depression, anxiety, and stress. The DASS should meet the requirements of both researchers and scientist-professional clinicians.

    Date Published: 7/2014
    Format: PDF
    Annotation: The Caregiver Health Self-Assessment Questionnaire was originally developed and tested by the American Medical Association. The questionnaire can help caregivers look at their own behavior and health risks. With their healthcare provider's help, this questionnaire can also help caregivers make decisions that may benefit both the caregiver and the older person. The questionnaire can help healthcare providers to identify and provide preventive services to an at-risk population that may be hidden. It may also improve communication and enhance the healthcare provider-caregiver health partnership.

    Annotation: The World Trade Center (WTC) Health Registry is studying the impact of Hurricane Sandy, a second major disaster, on the physical and mental health of Registry enrollees. This survey was sent to approximately 4,500 enrollees who lived in flood zones and to an equal number of enrollees who didn't. The survey will enable the Registry to assess changes in post-traumatic stress symptoms among both groups since post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) was last measured in 2011-2012.

  8. Athens Insomnia Scale
    Source: University of Toronto
    Date Published: 9/2013
    Format: PDF
    Annotation: Insomnia is widely measured using the Athens Insomnia Scale (AIS). Insomnia is measured by assessing eight factors: five factors are related to nocturnal sleep, and three factors are related to daytime dysfunction. These measures are rated on a 0-3 scale, and the sleep is finally evaluated from the cumulative score of all factors and reported as an individual's sleep outcome. AIS is considered to be an effective tool in sleep analysis, and is validated in various countries based on local patients. This resource was identified by the NIH Disaster Research Response Program (DR2) for researchers looking for pre- and post-disaster data collection instruments.

    Annotation: This toolbox is a multi-dimensional set of brief measures assessing cognitive, emotional, motor, and sensory function from ages 3 to 85, meeting the need for a standard set of measures that can be used as a "common currency" across diverse study designs and settings. It uses multiple constructs of the four domains: Cognition, Emotion, Motor, and Sensation. Cognition and Emotion have the more relevant instruments for post-disaster data collection. Cognition includes Executive Function, Attention, Episodic Memory, Language, Processing Speed, and Working Memory. Emotion includes Psychological Well-Being, Social Relationships, Stress and Self Efficacy, and Negative Affect.
