An SHO in Psychiatry working in an Eating Disorder clinic finds that many of her patients have experienced a traumatic event between the ages of 5-9, prior to developing the eating disorder. She would like to devise a study to test this hypothesis. The study design best suited to answer this research question is.

a. Case control study

b. Qualitative study

c. Randomised control study

d. Cross sectional survey

e. Cohort Study

should definitely be case control. Although the statement doesn't mention a control group but for the SHO to prove this theory she would need one.

Although to be very honest neither eating disorder or traumatic event would fall into a rare category.

Face validity

Construct validity

Content validity

Criterion validity

divergent validity

concurrent validity

subjects with panic disorder are rated using a new scale, (Panic disorder scale) together with an older well-validated scale. scores on the two scales are highly correlated.

patients with an ICD-10 diagnosis of paranoid personality disorder have much higher scores on the ‘paranoid subscale’ of the MMPI than subjects without paranoid personality disorder

concurrent validity

it is the agreement with another scale, which has itself been shown to be valid.

patients with an ICD-10 diagnosis of paranoid personality disorder have much higher scores on the ‘paranoid subscale’ of the MMPI than subjects without paranoid personality disorder

criterion related validity

used to demonstrate the accuracy of a measure by comparing it with another measure, which has been demonstrated to be valid or considered as gold standard.
