Review Measure

Essential Measures are only those items that are critical to the collection of the Measure or are necessary for the interpretation of results. Essential Measures are integral to the Measure. Without such information the data collected would be incomplete and/or misleading.
An additional PhenX Measure that the user may find helpful based on the selection of a particular PhenX Measure. Related PhenX Measures can include additional Measures that are needed to calculate a Derived Variable (e.g., Weight and Height are needed to calculate BMI), Measures that are commonly used in presentations and publications to present the value of the chosen Measures (e.g., Height and Weight by Race and Ethnicity), Measures that are conceptually related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Current Educational Attainment is conceptually related to Annual Family Income and Arm Span is conceptually related to Height), Measures that are physiologically and/or biologically related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Stroke and Heart Disease). Related PhenX Measures are suggestions only.
The Collections are an alternative to the research domains for browsing the PhenX Measures. Measures that are related by a specific topic are grouped together.

Measure: General and Psychosis-related Psychopathology Symptoms   #122100


A clinician-administered rating scale for assessing symptoms of psychotic disorders.


This clinician-administered interview assesses the severity of major psychiatric symptoms. This measure includes two protocols, the Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale (BPRS) and the Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS). Both measures include ratings of general psychopathology and can be used to assess the effectiveness of interventions in populations with moderate-to-severe psychotic disorders. The PANSS includes all of the BPRS items and additional items that provide a more detailed assessment of the severity of the negative and positive symptoms of schizophrenia and related disorders. Thus, the PANSS is particularly useful in assessing the effectiveness of interventions for positive and negative symptoms in this patient group.



Psychiatric, early psychosis, psychosis, negative symptoms, disorganization, mood, suicidal behavior, suicide, schizophrenia, delusions, psychoses, psychotic, hallucinations
