Polish adaptation of Physician’s Trust in the Patient Scale (PTPS) – psychometric properties and validation
This repository contains the raw data of Polish adaptation of Physician’s Trust in the Patient Scale (PTPS) – psychometric properties and validation. The purpose of the study was to adapt into Polish the Physician's Trust in the Patient Scale (PTPS) (Thom et al., 2011) and to determine its internal structure and psychometric properties: reliability and theoretical, criterion, convergent, and discriminant validity. The data was gathered by the survey in the form of a questionnaire conducted online with the use of Qualtrics platform. The method of recruiting the respondents: invitations were sent by email directly to medical facilities, hospitals, and outpatient clinics, as well as to medical universities in Poland. 307 medical doctors representing 51 various medical specialties participated in the study. This number included: 168 women, 138 men, and one person not identifying with any of the above - mentioned genders. Participants came from 26 various cities in Poland. In order to avoid the possibility of identifying the participants, we decided to remove from the dataset the following sociodemographic data: gender, residence, marital status, information about having children, workplace, employment duration and length of professional experience. The dataset contains all the other data that allows to replicate the results and carry out all the calculations that we have implemented in our original research. This includes the results of the following measures: 1) Physician's Trust in the Patient Scale (referred to as PTPS) (Thom et al., 2011); 2) The Disposition to Trust & Trusting Beliefs Measure (referred to as DtT and TBM) (McKnight et al., 2002); 3) General Trust Scale (referred to as GTS) (Yamagishi & Yamagishi, 1994); 4) Oldenburg Burnout Inventory (referred to as OLBI) (Demerouti & Bakker, 2007); 5) Self-efficacy subscale from the Copenhagen Psychosocial Questionnaire COPSOQ II (referred to as S_E) (Pejtersen et al., 2010); 6) Job Satisfaction subscale from the Copenhagen Psychosocial Questionnaire COPSOQ II (referred to as JS) (Pejtersen et al., 2010); 7) Ten-Item Personality Inventory (referred to as TIPI) (Gosling et al., 2003). All measures used in the study were previously validated Polish versions with satisfying psychometric properties. The variables signed with R in the end, means that they are reversed, accordingly to the appropriate measure key. The numbers of variables are in accordance with the number of questions in the given tools. The missing data is signed with the 9 (all items), 99 (for medical specialty), or 999 (for age). The repository contains also the PDF file (Appendix A.) with the legend of the numbers representing particular medical specialties (the list is in accordance with the specialties currently operating in Poland).
