The Expectation for Treatment Scale (ETS): A tool to assess outcome-related expectations of patients
We developed the ETS to assess treatment-related outcome expectations for patients with a short but sound questionnaire. Further, we suggest to use the ETS as predictor for treatment outcomes across different clinical settings.
The ETS questionnaire and supplementary material are available from our institute (contact below).
