Thanks, Jim. The BSI is a bit expensive and we have data already on hundreds of patients with whom we have used it. The SF-36 only addresses depression among mental/emotional symptoms and is not very sensitive within our population of high utilizing somatizers, but it is not bad. We are already using it and will either continue to do so or switch to the SF-12. The HSQ is just NCS's version of the SF-36. We have used that in the past as well. I have not heard of the PAI. What is it? Nor the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale. Can you send me a copy of that and citations or articles? The POMS is copyrighted and under license. It must be paid for too. I was thinking of the GHQ which is in the public domain. What do you think of that as a tool for measuring change? Steve
