Summary
This data collection contains four files of the Clinical Simulation Test for Hypertension (CST:HYP), an instrument developed by the Primary Care Judgements of Nurses and Physicians Research Project to empirically assess the clinical judgements of physicians and nurses in relation to essential hypertension in the period 1976-1978. The purpose of the study was to measure the clinical judgments of health professionals in relation to those of a panel of eight national experts in the specific area of hypertension. The instrument simulates the clinical processes from presentation of the chief complaint of a 46-year-old Caucasian male with essential hypertension through diagnoses and treatment. The Clinical Simulation Test (Part 1) was given to 173 respondents who were divided into six groups: family practice physicians, nurse practitioners with master's degrees, certified nurse practitioners, public health nurses, pre-medical students, and nursing students. The test contains 11 sections and three diagnostic tests. Eight of the test sections required the respondents to choose from among a list of possible treatment options. Three sections were open-ended and required respondents to identify relevant patient data or to list patient problems. During the process, respondents chose appropriate procedures from among a wide range of possible choices. Items also include an evaluation of the test instrument by the respondents, a proficiency scale which is scored by means of a computer program (Part 2), and the responses of eight experts used for the purpose of test instrument validation (Parts 3 and 4). Demographic items specify age, sex, education, professional preparation, residency program, specialty, position, and disease management experience of respondents.
