The Short Form HFBBS is a 16 item scale that includes items from the Hot Flush Beliefs Scale (Rendall et al 2008) and the Hot Flush Behaviour Scale (Hunter et al 2011), and offers a shorter instrument with similar psychometric properties. 140 women with hot flushes (baseline data from Ayers et al 2012) completed both scales and principal component factor analyses performed to examine relationships between items and factor loadings.
