Abstract

The British English version of the Workplace Accommodations, Benefits, Policies and Practices Scale (WABPPS) has been psychometrically tested in rheumatoid arthritis (RA), axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA), osteoarthritis (OA) and fibromyalgia (FM). The WABPPS was forward translated, reviewed by an expert panel and cognitive debriefing interviews conducted, with changes to the WABPPS made. The WABPPS was tested with 831 employed participants who completed questionnaires: 267 men; 564 women; 53.5 (SD 8.9) years of age; with condition duration 7.7 (SD 8.0) years. Concurrent validity was acceptable. Internal consistency was consistent with group. Test-retest reliability was excellent. The British-English version of the WABPPS is reliable and valid and can be used in both research, organizational studies and rehabilitation.
