Drug Attitude Inventory-10 (DAI-10)

 
 

 How to Score
The DAI-10 scoring ranges from -10 to +10 with a total score >0 indicating a positive attitude toward psychiatric medications and a total score of <0 indicating a negative attitude toward psychiatric medications.
 

Strengths
  • Self-report measure
  • Shorter (5-10 minutes) and easier to administer compared to DAI-30
  • Translated into several foreign languages
 

 Weaknesses
  • Scoring requires some interpretation because “true” may indicate either a positive or negative view about medications
  • Physical adverse effects are not assessed
