    Abstract

    The revised Diabetes Attitudes Scale (DAS) was completed by nearly 1000 nurses and nursing students in South Australia. Confirmatory factor analysis was used to compare the factor structure with that previously obtained in the USA with patients with diabetes. The instrument was found to be robust. It was concluded that only one item of the 50-item scale is unsuitable for inclusion in studies which aim to compare patient and health professional attitudes.
