The Marketing Scales website is a gold mine of information.  It is the only source that helps me understand the psychometric quality of the instruments used in past research.  I recommend that researchers bookmark this site . . . they will be back!

Four questions and a seven-point response scale are used to measure how much a person believes the side effects of a medicinal drug are serious and threatening.

The scale is composed of four, seven-point items intended to measure person's interest in and likelihood of trying a particular prescription medication.

Three questions with a dichotomous response format (yes/no) are used in this scale to measure the extent to which a person reports that direct-to-consumer (DTC) advertising has influenced him/her to speak with a physician about the drug and/or his/her medical condition.

This three item, four-point Likert-type scale measures a person's beliefs regarding direct-to-consumer (DTC) advertising of prescription drugs. These beliefs could be considered perceptions of the benefits of DTC.

Eighteen, five-point summated rating scales are used to measure the potency of a person's overall negative emotional response to a stimulus to which he or she has been exposed. The stimulus used in the study by Schoenbachler and Whittler (1996) was an antidrug-related public service announcement.

Three, five-point, Likert-type statements are used to measure the extent to which a physician believes that pharmaceutical advertising has had a positive impact on the prescriptions he or she has subsequently written.
