Scoring Procedures:

The PCCC is intended to be calculated as the percentage of respondents who reported a top score ("5") on all four items of the scale. Scores may be calculated within the individual provider level or within the facility level. The researchers recommend a panel size of 50 patient responses within the facility level and 30 patient responses within the individual provider level.
