|Issue Date:||Jun-1991||Citation:||Lim, L.C., Chew, S.J. (1991-06). Validation of the General Health Questionnaire in female video display unit (VDU) operators in Singapore.. Singapore Medical Journal 32 (3) : 143-145. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Fifty-seven Chinese female Video Display Unit operators employed in a multi-national company were asked to complete the 28-item General Health Questionnaire (GHQ-28). This is part of a study on stress and asthenopia in this group of workers. Validity of the GHQ-28 was determined by comparison with the Clinical Interview Schedule (CIS). The GHQ-28 was found to give optimum results with a cut-off score of 5/6. The CIS classified 28.07% as cases and this was comparable to the estimated prevalence of 28.03% derived from the GHQ.||Source Title:||Singapore Medical Journal||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/134051||ISSN:||00375675|
