AN INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE IN PROJECT OF RESEARCH WORKING GROUP



LMHI working group on research and CCRH conjointly intend to take up a project to assess content validity of this modified Naranjo algorithm first by inviting experts from three relevant fields, i.e. research, academics, and practice. Subsequently, after getting responses from the experts, multi-rater agreement (Cohen’s kappa) of the items and inter-rater and intra-rater reliability will be examined. Then the collected data using this algorithm will be subjected to psychometric (both exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis, validity and reliability statistics) and clinimetric analyses.

In this content validation phase of the modified Naranjo algorithm, interested researchers among LMHI members are invited to participate. Interested members are requested to contact me at below mention email id. The survey to begin with will be in English but can be further modified for German and Spanish colleagues. The outcome will be discussed during next LMHI congress. We need minimum 30 participants in the survey and about 5 in the expert panel. Persons working in the expert panel and contributing significantly will be included either as author or duly acknowledged in the final manuscript.
