2018 Psychometric Testing of CHANT

  • We tested the revised items in 2018 by gathering responses from 600 nurses across the nation through on-line and snowball recruiting.
  • Respondents were asked to add comments, which we considered in the revision

  • We did not further change the scales, but we edited some of the demographic and frequency questions for clarity
