Nurses provide interventions for depression across the care continuum. Yet published outcomes of these interventions are limited. This study examined validity and reliability of two measures for evaluating nursing interventions, the Depression Coping Self-Efficacy Scale (DCSES) and Nursing Record of Patient Daily Activity (NRPDA). At admission and dismissal, 25 partial hospitalization program (PHP) patients and 25 inpatients treated for depression completed the DCSES and a depression measure, and researchers completed two clinician measures. Using the NRPDA, staff nurses recorded frequencies of all patient treatment activities and a researcher recorded patient activities for select hours on 33 patients. Eighteen patients completed a patient version of the NPRDA for 2 days. Cronbach's alpha coefficients for the DCSES were 0.94 - 0.96. Among PHP patients, the DCSES correlated with patient and clinician measures at dismissal (r=-0.66, -0.56, 0.50). Among the inpatients, the DCSES correlated with patient and one clinician measure at admission and dismissal (r -=-0.63 to -0.76), and with the other clinician measure at dismissal only (r=0.67). Multiple inconsistencies in recording patient activities on the NRPDA were found. Findings indicate promise for the DCSES for measuring/targeting interventions and methodological challenges in evaluating nursing interventions in naturalistic settings.
