The patients preferences questionnaire for angina treatment: results and psychometrics from 383 patients in primary care in England

Record type: Article

Objectives: To develop a psychometrically valid Patient
Preferences Questionnaire for Angina treatment (PPQA).
Setting Seven general practices across England in 2007.
Subjects Convenience sample of 383 patients with
diagnosed angina.

Method: Postal self-administered questionnaire survey
using the full-length PPQA. This comprised 54 items
about the three main treatment modalities for angina:
medication, angioplasty and coronary artery bypass
grafting.

Results: The full PPQA was reduced to 18 items, six for
each of the three subscales (treatment modalities), by
standard psychometric methods. The reduced PPQA was
psychometrically sound and valid, although confirmatory
factor analyses with a larger sample are required.
Conclusion The PPQA is a potentially useful instrument
to help clinicians understand patients’ angina treatment
preferences.
