There is a need for patient-reported experience measures (PREMs) in high-tech hospital environments based on the philosophy of person-centeredness. The aim of this study was to describe the development and initial psychometric evaluation of a measure of person-centeredness by means of being taking seriously. In this cross-sectional survey, the study sample (n = 79) completed two measures, the Being Taken Seriously Questionnaire—Patient version (BTSQ-P) which was the measure undergoing psychometric evaluation, and the Person-Centered Climate Questionnaire—Patient version (PCQ-P) that was used to evaluate the climate in which the intervention was occurring. The expected scale dimensionality was examined both by the confirmatory multi-trait analysis program and by explorative principal component analysis (with oblique, varimax rotation). Scale reliability was estimated using ordinal alpha and Cronbach’s alpha. One solid factor was generated. This factor had good internal convergent validity and good item–scale reliability, covering 80.41% of the variance. The interitem correlation ranged from 0.759 to 0.908 and the alpha was 0.93 (ordinal alpha) and 0.87 (Cronbach’s alpha) respectively. There was a strong relationship between BTSQ-P and the PCQ-P dimension safety climate. In conclusion, the internal consistency, reliability and concurrent validity of the BTSQ-P was satisfactory for use in a high-tech hospital environment. View Full-Text
