PURPOSES/AIMS:
The purpose of this presentation is to describe the process of developing items for an instrument to measure quality of nursing care as perceived by hospitalized patients with advanced illness.
RATIONALE/CONCEPTUAL BASIS/BACKGROUND:
Developing an instrument is a multi-step process requiring careful decision making at each step. Although there are many articles discussing and findings of psychometric analysis of new instruments, there are few describing in detail the steps and strategies for generation and selection of items for the instrument. Textbooks for instrument development provide general descriptions of the process, but often fall short of guiding the researcher in applying the general method to a particular instrument.
METHODS:
As part of on-going research to develop an instrument to measure quality of nursing care as perceived by patients with advanced illness, the process of decision making for item generation and selection are presented.
RESULTS:
To develop an instrument to measure quality of nursing care for a particular group of patients, the concept of "quality nursing care for hospitalized patients with advanced illness" was developed using the hybrid approach integrating the literature and 16 qualitative interviews. Using the developed concept as a framework and the qualitative data as a source, 188 items were developed for Quality of Nursing Care Scale - Patients with Advanced Illness (QNCS-PAI). Items were grouped in domains, and similar items were merged and/or eliminated. Seventy five items were selected, which are currently under review by a panel of seven experts for relevance and clarity. Further revision and selection of items will be examined by patients from target population using cognitive interviews.
We will present:
* Examples of how items were generated from qualitative data,
*Item selection process,
*Criteria and rationale for selecting experts to review the items,
*Analysis of expert review RESULTS: and decision making, and
*Process, data, and analysis of cognitive interviews.
IMPLICATIONS:
Generating clear and empirically valid items is critical to developing a valid and reliable instrument. Careful examination and clear understanding of the IMPLICATIONS: of each decision made in selecting items are indispensible. This analysis will provide concrete examples of a series of decisions and considerations in the process of item development.
