A quick, cost-effective and comprehensive measure of symptomatology, the Symptom Assessment-45 Questionnaire (SA-45) uses the proven items and structure of the Symptom Checklist-90 (SCL-90) to arrive at a brief, valid and reliable measure of psychiatric sympomatology.  Its comprehensive breadth gives you confidence when used as a screening tool for behavioural healthcare services, helping you arrive at a diagnosis, formulate treatment and assess outcomes.  The instrument’s brevity makes it ideal for use in managed-care settings.  It has become a key component of the instrumentation employed by treatment outcomes researchers at over 100 behavioural healthcare facilities.

Using a 5-point level-of-severity scale, the SA-45 measures Anxiety, Depression, Hostility, Interpersonal Sensitivity, Obsessive-Compulsivity, Paranoid Ideation, Phobic Anxiety, Psychoticism and Somatisation.  A score for the Global Severity and Positive Symptom indexes, helpful when assessing overall symptomatology, are also produced.  The SA-45 is scored relative to a normative database of over 18,000 individuals.  Appendices in the Technical Manual provide inpatient and non-patient age- and gender-based norms.


The SA-45 may be hand or computer scored.  Computer scoring is completed using the Smartlink (V5) software on your PC or through the PAA Scoring Bureau Service.
