Product Details

Designed to present a concise, coordinated assessment of the biopsychosocial issues that are most relevant in evaluating patients with injuries. Because psychological and social factors that go undetected can significantly interfere with a patient's response to treatment, the BHI 2 test can help caregivers shape an appropriate treatment plan, that may reduce treatment time and improve a patient's quality of life.

How to Use This Test

The BHI 2 test can be used by psychologists, psychiatrists, anesthesiologists, neurologists, physical therapists, surgeons, rehabilitation specialists, and nurses to help:

  • Evaluate a patient's readiness for medical and behavioral interventions
  • Meet evidence based medical treatment guidelines outlined for good clinical practice  
  • Measure the relationship and impact of physical, environmental, and psychological factors on the patient's treatment
  • Support evaluations involving injuries, worker's compensation, and psychological factors
  • Evaluate treatment effectiveness and monitor clinical outcomes
  • Facilitate communication within a multidisciplinary treatment team or between physicians and psychologists

Key Features

  • Takes approximately 30 minutes to administer.
  • Objective results help reduce treatment time, improve treatment planning, and improve the patient's quality of life.
  • Helps measure numerous outcomes, including reduction of pain, improvement in function, and satisfaction with care
  • Includes 31 Critical Items that highlight clinical concerns such as Addiction Concerns, Compensation Focus, Sleep Disorders, Satisfaction with Care, Suicidal Ideation, and Violent Tendencies.
  • Content areas within each scale help distinguish specific reasons for problems.

Psychometric Information

The BHI 2 test was normed using a sample of 725 community individuals and a sample of 527 physical rehabilitation and chronic pain patients. Reports compare the patient to both norm groups and use the average physical rehabilitation patient as a benchmark for interpretations and clinical recommendations.

Reference Groups

As well as comparing the patient to the community sample and the patient sample, the BHI 2 instrument also compares the patient to individuals with a similar condition for the five reference groups listed below. These groups are based on common diagnostic categories of injuries often seen in rehabilitation settings and are used by the Pain Complaints scale.

  • Head injury/headache
  • Neck injury
  • Upper extremity injury
  • Lower extremity injury
  • Back injury

In addition, the Pain Complaints scale uses a chronic pain reference group, while the Defensiveness and Self-Disclosure scales use reference groups for symptom magnification and symptom minimization as additional benchmarks for clinical interpretation.
