Abstract: Countertransference, as a form of projective identification, has historically been regarded by clinicians as deleterious for patient treatment. The shift to value-based compensation systems in organized medicine, however, compels new provider competencies enabling team-based, coordinated care delivery. Toward this goal, the current paper reports on a newly developed self-report instrument for assessing a health provider’s patient identity (PI). After overviewing its nomological net, theoretical conceptualization, and instrumentation, empirical evidence from two studies is reported for PI. In study one, the instrument was piloted among American medical (4th-year) and nursing (2nd-year) students (N = 119). Observed-score analyses indicated preliminary factorial (exploratory factor analysis) and predictive (hierarchical linear regression) validity evidence for team attitudes. In study two, a German-translated instrument was deployed in an equivalent sample frame of medical (4th-year) and nursing (2nd-year) students (N = 134). Latent variable analyses using structural equation modeling extended factorial validity evidence (confirmatory). Item response theory analyses was used to benchmark measurement properties, as well as test measurement equivalence of PI across American and German samples (N = 253). Overall findings and implications for further development and usage are discussed.
