Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

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

METHOD:

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.

RESULTS:

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.

CONCLUSION:

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.
