Do you feel stress - tense, restless, nervous, or anxious, or unable to sleep at night because your mind is troubled all the time - these days [OSQ]
A single-question stress measure converged with items on psychological symptoms and sleep disturbances and with validated measures of well-being scored on a five-point Likert scale. PMID: 14712852 The question reads as follows:
Stress means a situation in which a person feels tense, restless, nervous, or anxious, or is unable to sleep at night because his/her mind is troubled all the time. Do you feel this kind of stress these days?
1 = "not at all," 2 = "only a little," 3 = "to some extent," 4 = "rather much," and 5 = "very much"
This question has been primarily tested in Scandinavian populations and can be linked to the PROMIS Emotional Distress (Depression and Anxiety) Short Form scales, which also are reliable and valid ways to assess stress. As of 2015, there is no clinical cutoff for determining when interventions, such as referral to stress management, are warranted.
