Patient participation is an important topic in mental health and receives increased attention along with deinstitutionalization. No tool exists to measure healthcare worker-related factors that influence patient participation.

A three-staged study was conducted to develop and validate the ‘Patient Participation Culture Tool for inpatient PSYchiatric wards’ (PaCT-PSY), and to analyse its psychometric properties (n = 603).

The 60-items tool, comprising thirteen components, showed content validity, strong psychometric properties, and a high internal consistency.

The PaCT-PSY measures the patient participation culture on psychiatric wards by exploring healthcare worker's factors influencing patient participation. It enables researchers, practitioners and administrators to develop tailored actions.
