Sturgiss, Elizabeth; Rieger, Elizabeth; Haesler, Emily; Ridd, Matthew; Douglas, Kirsty; Galvin, Shelley


Background: Relational aspects of primary care are important, but we have no standard measure for assessment. The ‘working alliance’ incorporates elements of the therapeutic relationship, shared decision-making, goal setting and communication skills. The Working Alliance Inventory (short form) (WAI-SF) has been used in adult psychology, and a high score on the survey is associated with improved outcomes for clients.
