  1. It’s shown each Spearman’s rho coefficient of standardized CRPT assessment (CRPT1) with a simultaneous Color-Risk Psyhciatric Triage (CRPT2) and a Crisis Triage Rating Scale (CTRS) assessment, which were assessed by a researcher. CRTS scores was broken down by CTRS domains (Dangerousness, Support and Cooperativeness), and Overall CTRS score (3-15). In order to test predictive validity, discharge and suicidal risk were correlated with each CRPT and CRTS level/risk. CRPT: Color-Risk Psychiatric Triage. CTRS: Crisis and Triage Rating Scale (Bengersdolf et al, 1984)
  2. aAll correlations had <0.0001 of statistical significance
  3. bDue to its risk inherent evaluation, Dangerousness was considered the most significative subdomain of CTRS for the measurement of concurrent validity of CRPT
