New measure in DIRUM
The Treatment Inventory Cost in psychiatric patients (TiC-P) instrument has recently been added to the DIRUM database. The questionnaire is specifically developed to measure healthcare consumption and productivity losses in patients with mental disorders. Reliability, feasibility and validity of the instrument have been shown by Bouwmans et al. (2013, BMC Health Serv Res). The questionnaire is available after registration through the website of iMTA (www.imta.nl/questionnaires) and is free of charge for non-commercially sponsored studies. The questionnaire is currently available in English and Dutch.
