To assess the validity and reliability of the Spanish version of the Intensity of Interprofessional Collaboration questionnaire (Sicotte et al).


In the first phase, the questionnaire was translated and adapted to Spanish. The questionnaire was then distributed to a sample of 123 nurses in a Spanish University hospital. In the second phase, the construct validity, convergent validity, and internal consistency of the Spanish version of the questionnaire were determined.


A principal components analysis with Promax rotation suggested the existence of 4 factors that accounted for 61.47% of the total variance. Pearson's correlation coefficient between the Spanish instrument and another instrument measuring the same phenomenon was 0.718. Analysis of the internal consistency of the instrument showed a Cronbach's alpha coefficient of 0.907.


We can conclude that the intensity of interprofessional collaboration scale shows good validity and reliability in the measurement of the intensity of collaboration among professionals in healthcare teams.
