Electronic Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale Included In A Wider Range Of Clinical Studies

The objective of this study was to compare the equivalence of a new version of the electronic Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale that was administered on a tablet device. The results supported the validity and reliability of the new tablet-based electronic Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale and allow its inclusion in a wider range of clinical studies, particularly where a tablet is also being used to collect other study data.
