Attitudes About Abortion-Providing Physicians Scale (AAAPPS)
The Attitudes About Abortion-Providing Physicians Scale (AAAPPS) is a 20-item scale of how clinicians view their abortion-providing colleagues. Using three sub-scales, items elicit opinions about assumed motivations and competence of these providers.
Values of items are summed to create the sub-scale and total scale scores. Higher sums reflect more positive attitudes. Aggregated total scores range from 13 to 79.
