Parent Perceptions of Primary Care
Items ?
The number of questions in the survey
Short description
The P3C is a practical, reliable, and valid measure of parents' reports of pediatric primary care quality. This brief measure could be used alone, or in conjunction with other measures, to enhance outcomes and evaluate the impact of systems changes on the delivery of the main elements of primary care.
PCCC or QoL? ?
This compendium contains patient-reported measures that are either designed to specifically measure aspects of Person Centred Co-Ordinated Care (P3C), or alternatively tools that are designed to measure some aspect of Quality of Life (QoL) or Health Related Quality of Life (hrQoL). All the measures in this compendium have been broadly categorised into one of those two concepts.
Person Centred Coordinated Care
Main Domains Measured ?
This is the key domains that the measure is targeting.
Continuity, access, communication, coordination
Type of measure ?
The measures in this compendium can take a variety of forms. Generally, they will be either Patient Reported Outcome Measure (PROM) or Patient Reported Experience Measure (PREM). However, we have also included a few measures that are completed by proxy-individual (PROXY), which are useful in instances where the respondent cannot answer directly (e.g. dementia or end of life). Sometimes, these measures can even be a composite of these types, and target both experiences and outcomes – we have labelled these measures “PROEMs”.
Respondent ?
The person that fills in the questionnaire - e.g. patient, Health Care Professional, or proxy (normally a carer or family member)

Domain description
The 23-item P3C yields a total score, as well as subscale scores for continuity, access, contextual knowledge, communication, comprehensiveness, and coordination.


Brief description ?
A brief description of the initially reported psychometric properties of the measure.
Cronbach's coefficient alpha, an indicator of scale internal consistency reliability, was 0.95 for the P3C total scale. Factor analysis supported the subscale structure, and P3C scores were higher for children with health insurance, whose parents completed the survey in English, and who had a regular physician. P3C scores were positively related to parent reports of the child's health-related quality of life.
