Abstract

This study describes the development and validation of the Transitional Risk and Incident Questionnaire (TRIQ), which measures transitional patient safety from the patients' perspective. The TRIQ questionnaire was developed based on literature review, tested in the target group using a think-aloud procedure, and validated by a cross-sectional study among patients receiving healthcare at the interface between general practice and hospital care in two regions in the Netherlands. Exploratory factor analysis (EFA) was performed and internal consistency was assessed. The relationships between the occurrence of transitional safety incidents (TSI) as measured by the TRIQ questionnaire and relational continuity, and between TSI occurrence and overall rating of transitions were assessed. In total, 451 questionnaires were completed for analysis. The EFA provided a four-factor solution: 1) personal relation with general practitioner, 2) personal relation with hospital physician, 3) information exchange, and 4) treatment consistency. Internal consistency was good (composite reliability 0.75-0.95). An experienced TSI was related to a poorer relational continuity both with the general practitioner and hospital, and with a lower overall rating of all transitions. The TRIQ questionnaire is a valid and reliable questionnaire measuring transitional patient safety from the patients' perspective.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 6. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 14 December 2018.
All research outputs
#2,950,074
of 13,073,426 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Clinical Epidemiology
#964
of 2,605 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#79,059
of 270,789 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Clinical Epidemiology
#36
of 64 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,073,426 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 77th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,605 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 9.6. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 62% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 270,789 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 70% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 64 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 43rd percentile – i.e., 43% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
