MORS ToolsThere are two versions of the MORS: MORS-SF and MORS-Child
MORS SF has been developed for use with mothers or other primary caregivers where the infant is aged from a few weeks old up to the age about one year. Research in Hungary has found that MORS-SF, in the Hungarian version, was acceptable for use with male caregivers and performed in a similar way.
The English version of MORS-SF is available in two different presentations. One, ‘My Baby’ can be printed to form a simple A5 fold booklet. The other, that was produced by the Oxford PMH service, is a two-sided A4 form.
Validation studies have shown that MORS-SF has good psychometric properties (Oates et al., 2019).
MORS-SF is also available in Arabic, Simplified Chinese, Dutch, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Polish, Russian, Somali, Spanish and Swedish versions, which have each been back-translated and evaluated for semantic accuracy.
MORS Child is a very similar version, with the word ‘child’ replacing the word ‘baby’. This version was validated in a study conducted by a research team in the Warwick University Medical School (Simkiss et al. 2013) and has been found to have good psychometric properties, equivalent to those of MORS-SF.
