The University of Edinburgh are constructing a scale of how health and social care professionals respond to the context of caring, it’s called The Mindful Health Care Scale. They are looking for health and social care professionals of any professional background who have worked with patients in the last five years. The questionnaire measures how health and social care professionals respond to their work. Some of the items for example are:

- It is important for me to try and make a difference for my clients
- I try hard to avoid thoughts about my therapeutic work
- Worries about my abilities as a helping professional get in the way of my work
