BARRIOS, Karol; RODRIGUEZ-LOSADA, Jorge  y  SANCHEZ, Ricardo. Development of a self-report scale to measure manic symptoms. rev.fac.med. [online]. 2013, vol.61, n.3, pp.245-253. ISSN 0120-0011.

Summary Background. In Spanish language, no self-report instruments have been specifically developed to measure symptoms of bipolar disorder. The patient's perspective provides valuable information useful to diagnose and treat the disorder. Objective. Develop a self-report scale for measuring manic symptoms making use of the EMUN scale. Materials and methods. The items of the EMUN scale were transformed into a first person language by two psychiatrists. This preliminary version was evaluated in a pilot testing and adjusted according to this evaluation. A second pilot study applying the adjusted version to 20 patients having bipolar disorder was performed. Results. A 26 items scale including symptoms of mixed episode was developed. This scale measures three clinical relevant dimensions in mental health: frequency, severity and maladaptive effect of symptoms. Conclusions. The instrument developed can be a useful tool for researchers and in clinical settings to support educational interventions and patient's follow-up.
