    Format: PDF
    Date Published: 2/2013
    Annotation: The Work and Social Adjustment Scale (WSAS) is a five-item patient self-report measure, which assesses the impact of a person's mental health in terms of work, home management, social leisure, private leisure, and personal or family relationships.

  5. Community Health Assessment Following Mercaptan Spill: Appendices A, B, C, and D
    Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH)
    Format: PDF
    Date Published: 11/30/2012
    Annotation: This Community Assessment for Public Health Emergency Response (CASPER) questionnaire was used in a community following a Mercaptan spill in Alabama. Prior to each interview, the teams completed a tracking form (Appendix A) to record the outcome of every interview attempt. This information served as the basis for calculating the response rates. In the event that field teams encountered a household with urgent needs that presented an immediate threat to life or health, they were to encourage or assist the household to call emergency services (911). In the event that calling 911 was not appropriate, the teams would complete a confidential referral form (Appendix B). After gaining verbal consent (Appendix C), one eligible household member (18 years of age or older) from the family was selected to speak for all household members when responding to the questionnaire (Appendix D). Appendices A, B, C, and D can be found on pages 28 to 41 of the resource. This resource was identified by the NIH Disaster Research Response Program (DR2) for researchers looking for pre- and post-disaster data collection instruments.

  6. NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) Alert: Preventing Occupational Respiratory Disease from Exposures Caused by Dampness in Office Buildings, Schools, and Other Nonindustrial Buildings: Appendix A: Building Inspection Checklist
    Source: National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] (NIOSH)
    Format: PDF
    Date Published: 11/2012
    Annotation: Research studies show that exposures to building dampness and mold are associated with respiratory symptoms such as asthma, hypersensitivity, and other health impacts. These subsequent illnesses occur in part from a lack of knowledge and understanding of the nature and severity resulting from dampness and mold in buildings. This checklist, located in Appendix A, pages 19-21, describes methods for identifying evidence of leaks or dampness that can be addressed before extensive damage occurs. 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: 10/2012
    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.

    Date Published: 2012
    Annotation: The Network of Relationships Inventory (NRI) is able to examine a broad array of relationship characteristics across a number of different types of personal relationships. The most important feature of the NRI is that participants use the same set of items to describe their relationship with each of several members of their social network (e.g., mother, father, sibling, friend, romantic partner, and teacher). This feature results in a matrix of scores that are useful both for describing mean-level differences among different types of relationships and for describing each type of relationship in terms of a profile of qualities.

    Annotation: The purpose of the Military Acute Concussion Evaluation (MACE) from the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury is to evaluate a person in whom a concussion is suspected. The MACE is used to confirm the diagnosis and assess the current clinical status. Any one who was dazed, confused, "saw stars," or lost consciousness, even momentarily, as a result of an explosion/blast, fall, motor vehicle crash, or other event involving abrupt head movement, a direct blow to the head, or other head injury is an appropriate person for evaluation using the MACE.

    Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
    Format: PDF
    Date Published: 9/23/2011
    Annotation: This survey instrument used in the 2011 Community Assessment for Public Health Emergency Response (CASPER) in Bastrop, Texas, consisted of questions addressing several areas of concern for local emergency management and public health officials involved in the disaster response and recovery efforts for a wildfire. A similar instrument, http://online.liebertpub.com/doi/suppl/10.1089/hs.2015.0060/suppl_file/Supp_App2.pdf, was also later administered in 2015 in Bastrop, Texas. Subject areas included structural damage to the residence, access to basic services such as utilities, access to medical care, physical and mental health status, evacuation behaviors, wildfire-related communications, and pet and livestock issues, preparedness, and recovery. This resource was identified by the NIH Disaster Research Response Program (DR2) for researchers looking for pre- and post-disaster data collection instruments.

  19. Interview for Children: Traumatic Events Screening Inventory (TESI-C)
    Source: National Center for PTSD [Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder] [U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs]
    Format: PDF
    Date Published: 6/16/2011
    Annotation: The Traumatic Events Screening Inventory (TESI-C) protocol is a guide for clinical and/or research interviewing to screen for a child's history of exposure to potentially traumatic experiences. The protocol is designed to help clinicians focus in a systematic fashion on the primary domains of trauma for children, which include direct exposure to or witnessing of severe accidents, illness, or disaster; family or community conflict or violence; and sexual molestation. The questions are arranged to hierarchically review experiences in an order that helps the child tolerate the possible stress of disclosing traumatic experiences: gradually increasing the intimacy of the experiences (i.e., sexual trauma is reserved for the end of the interview), to help the child recall not only physical harm/violence but also incidents of threatened harm and witnessed trauma. This resource was identified by the NIH Disaster Research Response Program (DR2) for researchers looking for pre- and post-disaster data collection instruments.

    Source: Northwestern University
    Format: Text
    Date Published: 6/2011
    Annotation: Assessment Center is a free, online data collection tool that enables researchers to create study-specific Web sites for capturing participant data securely online. Studies can include measures within the Assessment Center library as well as custom instruments entered by the researcher. The instrument library includes self- and proxy-report short forms, computerized adaptive tests (CATs), and batteries or profiles from Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS), Quality of Life in Neurological Diseases (Neuro-QoL), NIH Toolbox, and Health LiTT.

    Among other features, Assessment Center also enables downloading library instruments for administration on paper; customization of items or instruments (e.g., format, randomization, skip patterns); real-time scoring of CATs and short forms; storage of protected health information (PHI) in a separate, secure database; automated accrual reports; real-time data export; and ability to capture endorsement of online consent forms. This resource was identified by the NIH Disaster Research Response Program (DR2) for researchers looking for pre- and post-disaster data collection instruments.
