About Burden Assessment Scale

Burden Assessment Scale (BAS; Reinhard, Gubman, Horwitz, & Minsky, 1994). The BAS was used to assess caregivers burden. It is a 19- item questionnaire and was used to assess subjective and objective burdens. The subjective burden of care is emotional cost of the presence of the patient in his/ her family and the objective burden is the disruptions a patient has on his/her family. This BAS measures that how many lives of caregivers have been affected by caring for a relative with schizophrenia on a rating scale from 1 (Not at all) to 4 (A lot).
Caregivers also have a choice to rate any item as not applicable. The scale was translated in Urdu for this research using the formal procedure in which the scale was first translated in Urdu by five psychologists then back-translated in English. During the translation process, special attention was paid to retain the conceptual meaning of items rather than their literal meanings. Cronbach’s alpha calculated for this study was .78.
