The role of accountability in promoting patient adherence to medication is not well characterized. The Accountability Measurement Tool (AMT) has been developed to quantify accountability but has not been investigated for use with patients with skin disease. We aim to test the reliability and validity of the AMT for patients with psoriasis. The 12-item AMT was used for patients with psoriasis. English-speaking adults with psoriasis who were expected to continue their medication were asked to complete the questionnaire. Reliability was measured using Cronbach’s alpha. Validity was measured using Pearson’s correlation coefficient and t-tests between the AMT and other validated scales measuring fear of negative evaluation and self-regulation.
