Content of the questionnaire
Target audienceAdults & Adolescents (from age 15)
ApplicationThe ICD-10-Symtom-Rating (ISR) has been developed to identify the most common syndromes of the ICD-10. The questions are closely related to the corresponding symptom lists contained in the ICD-10. The ISR can be used for screening as well as outcome monitoring.
CompositionThe ISR contains 29 items which measure the following syndromes/scales: depressive syndrome, anxiety syndrome, obsessive-compulsive syndrome, somatoform syndrome, eating disorder syndrom and one additional scale. This additional scale contains questions to clarify the possibility for the existence of further, less central syndromes. All items are rated on 5-point Likert scales.
Psychometric properties
Reliability & ValidityThe psychometric properties of the ISR have been investigated in multiple studies. The instrument has demonstrated an excellent reliability, but was still sensitive to change. Change can be measured with the RCI (reliable change index). The ISR also demonstrated sensitivity and specificity for the to be assessed syndromes.
