Comprehensive tool measuring chronic condition burden shows reliable results compared to surveys

Researchers have evaluated the Assessment of Burden of Chronic Conditions (ABCC) scale, which was developed to improve care by facilitating shared decision making and self-management. The scale assesses and visualizes the patient’s experience of one or multiple chronic conditions, and integrates it in daily care. The researchers determined it is valid and reliable in people with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), asthma or type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM). They compared the ABCC scale with other clinical questionnaires to assess validity, consistency and reliability.
