The Acute Care Confidence Survey: Examination of the Psychometric Properties and Predictors of Performance Among Students in a Large Inpatient Hospital System
Introduction: The Acute Care Confidence Survey (ACCS) was created as a measure of student self-efficacy for acute care clinical education experiences (CEEs). Initial measures of validity and reliability have been established; however, further psychometric testing is warranted to facilitate academic and clinical adaptation. This study aimed to further investigate the psychometric properties of the ACCS on a population of physical therapist students from diverse educational backgrounds. The study aims were to examine 1) the test–retest reliability of the ACCS, 2) the relationship between the ACCS and student demographic variables including previous acute care exposure, and 3) the relationship between ACCS scores and clinical performance.
