Abstract :
Nurses’ self-perception of their performance toward family members of patients is one of the most important issues in predicting family adaptive behaviors. This study analyze the psychometric properties of the Persian version of ICU nurses’ perceptions questionnaire of self-performance with families of critically ill patients. Methods: Among 135 intensive care nurses, to determine face validity, 10 nurses were asked to comment on, comprehensibility, grammar, and writing of items. Exploratory factor analysis was used to assess construct validity. Results: The intra-cluster correlation coefficient (ICC) was 0.82 and Cronbach’s alpha was 0.74. Exploratory factor analysis showed the first nine related factors have 65.22 variance. Conclusion: Persian version of “ICU nurses’ perceptions of self-performance with families of critically ill patients” had good reliability and validity.
