The purposes of this study were: to test newly developed measures of the symptom experience of persons with Parkinson's disease (PD) based on conceptualizations by Lenz et al. (1997) and Lazarus and Folkman (1984); and to test a modified version of the Jalowiec Coping Scale. Specifically, the study will: (a) test internal consistency reliabilities of measures of symptom severity (frequency, duration, & intensity), symptom distress, perceived control over symptoms, and coping with symptoms of PD; and (b) test the construct and predictive validity of the measures. Ninety persons with early to advanced stages of PD responded to questionnaires in a face-to-face interview. Content validity of the symptom measures was established by 2 experts in the treatment of PD, an expert in stress and coping, and open-ended questions to persons with PD. Reliability will be determined by Cronbach's coefficient alpha. Item analysis and known-groups technique will be used to assess construct validity. Predictive validity will be determined by examining the ability of the symptom and coping measures to predict physical and psychosocial health dysfunction among persons with PD.
