Om strukturerade frågor och tillförlitliga svar i missbruks- och beroendevård – en reliabilitetsstudie av intervjumetoden DOK

Mikael Dahlberg, Mats Anderberg


Strukturerade intervjuer har fått en ökad användning inom missbruks- och beroendevård. Den här artikeln beskriver en studie av intervjumetoden DOK, där tillförlitligheten avseende självrapporterade uppgifter analyseras. Några metodologiska frågor lyfts fram och diskuteras.
This paper presents results from a study of reliability concerning stability in selfreported information obtained from a standardized interview from a documentation system in Sweden (the DOK system). The paper also presents and discusses the choice of relevant statistical methods for testing and analyzing results from this type of reliability study. The degree of agreement between two different interviews for a total of 78 individuals from the database of DOK has been calculated and analyzed. The study shows a high level of stability for the self-reported information. Satisfactory or good reliability was achieved for 27 of the 28 studied variables. Another implication is that is it important to use relevant statistical methods when identifying strengths and weaknesses in this type of instruments and in order to make reliable conclusions from the results. Key words: structured interview, reliability, stability, DOK System, substance abuse, documentation
