Parents' and adolescents' decision-making and support are important for transfer of diabetes management responsibilities from parents to adolescents. However, reliable and valid measures of these variables are needed to predict this transfer. The purpose of this methodological study is to develop and test decision-making and support scales for use with diabetic adolescents and their parents. Based upon qualitative data, diabetes specific scales were developed: Parents' Perceived Advantages and Disadvantages involved in Decision-Making, Adolescents' Perceived Advantages and Disadvantages Involved in Decision Making, Parents' Giving Support and Adolescents' Receiving Support. A panel of 10 experts (physicians, nurses, and dieticians with expertise with adolescents with diabetes) reviewed the original 40 support and 78 decision-making items. Items with a content validity index of .80 or greater were retained, leaving 26 support and 46 decision-making items. These items were piloted with 37 pairs of parents and adolescents (12 to 18 years of age) with type 1 diabetes. Items were analyzed for low inter-item correlations (< .30), item to total correlations (>. 30) and an increased alpha coefficient if the item was deleted. Based on item analysis, 14 items were deleted from the support scale and 12 items from the decision-making scales. The Cronbach alpha's ranged from .82 to .93. Next, approximately 100 pairs of parents and adolescents (12 to 18 years of age) with type 1 diabetes will be enrolled. The sample size will provide 5 subjects or more per item for the 12-item support, 20-item advantage and 14-item disadvantage scales. Item analysis and exploratory factor analysis will be conducted. Construct validity will be determined.
