The main purpose of the study was to determine reliability and validity of the Chinese version of the Index of Nausea, Vomiting, and Retching (INVR) and the Index of Nausea and Vomiting Form 2 (INV-2) so as to provide a reliable and valid measure of nausea, vomiting, and retching for Chinese nurses and other healthcare providers. An integrative translation method was used in the study. The reliability and validity of the Chinese versions of INVR and INV-2 was evaluated using test-retest, parallel forms, and cross-over design. A convenient sample of 177 Chinese-speaking subjects was accrued from a large teaching cancer institute and a teaching obstetric hospital in Beijing, P. R. China. The integrative translation method was proved to be an effective method for translating instrument from the source to the target language. Both the Chinese versions of INV-2 and INVR were found to have high Cronbach's alpha and a high rate of agreement. The responses to the Chinese version of INVR were more frequently consistent than the responses to the INV-2. Majority of the patients voiced preference for the INVR. With the realization of the effectiveness of Chinese traditional medicines (e.g., acupuncture, acupressure, and herbal treatment) in managing nausea, vomiting, and retching, using the Chinese version of INVR and INV-2 in assessing the traditional Chinese medicine interventions will provide profound insight and accurate documentations regarding the effectiveness of each intervention. The outcomes of the study have the potential for the development of a scientific database for additional collaborative research that may improve patients' self-care and quality of life.
