Table 1 EBPAS subscale and item means, standard deviations, Cronbach’s alpha and item-total correlation

From: Confirmatory factor analysis of the Evidence-Based Practice Attitude Scale (EBPAS) in a large and representative Swedish sample: is the use of the total scale and subscale scores justified?
