Author: 
MSc.Ahmet SEVEN and Dr. Havva SERT
Subject Area: 
Health Sciences
Abstract: 

Objectives: This study was conducted to examine whether the Turkish version of the Palliative Care Knowledge Test (PCKT) was a valid and reliable tool. Methods: Methodological study was conducted with 350 nurses, who agreed to participate in the research, The Public Hospitals Association in Sakarya province center, Turkey. In the study of validity and reliability of PCKT, language equivalence, coverage validity, construct validity, Cronbach alpha, Gutman and Spearman Brown reliability coefficients, item analysis and test retest technique were used. Results: There was a significant positive correlation between PCKT general and all sub-dimensions and the applications of Turkish and English forms (p <0.000). The coverage validity index (CI) score was found to be significant at 0.99 ± 0.022 (CI> 0.80). PCKT internal consistency reliability was calculated as Cronbach Alpha value α = 0.91. The reliability coefficients of the items (Equal-length Spearman-Brown) were Sb = 0.83 and (Guttman split-half) G = 0.86. PCKT item-total, item-remaining and item-discriminating properties were found to be statistically significant at p <0,000 and all items in PCKT subscales at p <0.001. Test retest (n = 30) analysis of PCKT revealed a significant positive correlation between the first and second treatments at 3 week interval (p <0.000). Conclusion: Palliative Care Knowledge Test (PCKT) Turkish form is a valid and reliable tool.
