From: Development and description of measurement properties of an instrument to assess treatment burden among patients with multiple chronic conditions

  Correlation with the Treatment Burden Questionnaire global scorea Pvalue
TSQM global score -0.41 < 0.0001
TSQM efficacy score -0.26 < 0.0001
TSQM convenience score -0.53 < 0.0001
TSQM side effects scorea -0.52 < 0.0001
  1. The TSQM assesses satisfaction with medication. Scores range from 0 to 100. A high score indicates high satisfaction with the medication. Negative coefficients indicate a decrease in the TSQM score associated with an increase in treatment burden.
