Abstract [sv]

Kort Upprepad Skattning av Ätstörningssymptom- Patientversion

(KUS-P) är ett självskattningsformulär, avsett att mäta de vanligaste

symptomen hos personer med ätstörningar. Formuläret har använts i

forskningssammanhang samt i kliniska sammanhang. De

psykometriska egenskaperna har inte tidigare undersökts. Syftet med

föreliggande studie var att validera och normera formuläret.

Självskattningar från en normalpopulation bestående av 945

gymnasie- och universitetsstuderande samlades in för studiens

analyser. Data på 270 patienter från en ätstörningsenhet fungerade

som klinisk jämförelsegrupp. Det insamlade materialet undersöktes

avseende könsskillnader. Resultaten visar att KUS-P har god

reliabilitet och validitet samt klassificerar 84 % korrekt, med ett

gränsvärde på 22 poäng för kvinnor. Det visade sig finnas

signifikanta skillnader mellan könen, på hela skalan samt på de

symptomfrågor som rör tankar och känslor.

Abstract [en]

Kort Upprepad Skattning av Ätstörningssymptom - Patientversion

(KUS-P) is a self-report questionnaire, intended to measure the most

common symptoms in people with eating disorders. The questionnaire

has been used in research and in clinical contexts but its psychometric

properties have not yet been reported on. The aim with this study was

to validate and standardize the questionnaire. Self-reports from a

normal population comprising of 945 upper secondary school and

university students was gathered for the study's purposes. Records

from 270 patients in an eating disorder unit served as a clinical

comparison group. The collected material was examined with regards

to sex differences. The result shows that KUS-P has good reliability

and validity. The questionnaire classifies 84% correctly and has a cutoff

value at 22 points for women. There were significant differences

between sexes, on the entire scale and on those symptom questions

concerning thoughts and feelings.
