Table 6 Criterion validity: Discharge Self Care and Domestic Life scale ROC cut-off scores and their corresponding sensitivity/specificity in identifying discharge destination

From: Responsiveness, construct and criterion validity of the Personal Care-Participation Assessment and Resource Tool (PC-PART)

PC-PART scale Positive if ≤ toa: Raw scores represented Sensitivity 1-Specificity Specificity
(true + ve) (false + ve) (true -ve)
Discharge Self Care score −1.00 <0 .00 .00 1
5.50 0 .83 .47 .53
15.00 1 .95 .64 .46
22.00 2 .97 .74 .26
Discharge Domestic Life score −1.00 <0 .00 .00 1
7.50 0 .75 .40 .60
20.50 1 .90 .48 .52
29.50 2 .93 .55 .45
35.50 3 .96 .65 .35
  1. Potential cut-off scores to optimise sensitivity and specificity of PC-PART scales for identifying patients with ADL participation restrictions who should remain as inpatients and those who may appropriately be discharged to a specified community living situation
  2. aPositive state is discharge to home or residential care. The smallest cutoff value is the minimum observed test value minus 1, and the largest cutoff value is the maximum observed test value plus 1. All the other cutoff values are the averages of two consecutively ordered observed test values
