Calculation of the sample size and oversampling was calculated as proposed by Cochrane.Results: The Cronbach’s α in this study at baseline was 0.82. Intra-class correlation coefficient was 0.81 (p ≤ 0.001). Medication construct was loaded into two factors or components whilst the psychosocial construct was loaded into four factors.Conclusion: The data depicted here indicated a successful validation and presentation of psychometric properties of PETiT which is self-administered, user friendly, psychometrically sound and sensitive to changes associated with treatment over time.
