The Partners in Health scale is a structurally valid measure of chronic condition self-management behaviours. This report describes a study that further evaluated construct validity of Partners in Health scale by assessing its relationship with a single-item measure of general self-rated health. The concurrent validity of the scale was demonstrated by a statistically significant association with general self-rated health in a population representative sample of people with chronic conditions.
