Abstract:
Is the STAI a Valid Tool for Use in the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Population?

The purpose of this descriptive, correlational study is to (a) establish the content validity, internal consistency and test-retest reliability of the State Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) Form Y-1 among individuals with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and (b) assess the perceived anxiety in IBD individuals. The STAI Form Y-1 measures situational and baseline anxiety at any moment based on responses to twenty questions. There is a need to validate the use of the STAI Form Y-1 as a tool for measuring anxiety in the IBD population per the suggestion of the NINR. In addition, there is a need to use the STAI Form Y-1 in the United States and to update the current research on IBD and anxiety. Using Orem’s self-care deficit theory of nursing, a chosen panel of ten individuals with knowledge of IBD and gastroenterology will be asked to review the STAI and complete a content validity index (CVI) and a demographic data questionnaire (DDQ). A sample of 35 individuals diagnosed with IBD will be asked to complete the STAI and the DDQ. IBD individuals will repeat the STAI and Changes in Current Health Care Status Questionnaire two weeks later. Data will be analyzed using descriptive statistics, Cronbach alpha, Pearson’s r correlation, and paired t test. Descriptive statistics will be used to identify the perceived anxiety in IBD individuals. Based on the literature review and previous research, anticipated findings suggest that the STAI will be valid and reliable in assessing anxiety in the IBD individual. Future studies of the STAI should employ national and international populations, larger samples and inpatient settings.
