Abstract:
The major purpose was to develop a valid and reliable tool, the Pain Management Outcomes Expectations Instrument (PMOEI), for measuring the construct of Pain Management Outcome Expectations (PMOE) when an "outcome expectation" is defined as one's estimate that a specific behavior will lead to a desired pain management outcome. Testing focused on estimating the PMOEI's content validity, internal consistency, stability and construct validity. Data-collection instruments with known psychometric properties measured related constructs. Analysis included Cronbach's alpha, Pearson r, factor analysis and multiple regression. The convenience sample (n=86) of 18 men and 68 women with arthritis had an average age of 54 years (SD=13.50). Overall, results demonstrated high estimates of validity and reliability. The relevance of items was rated as high (1.00) by rheumatologists and moderate (.54) by self-efficacy experts. Alpha for the 11-item PMOEI was .95, with item-to-scale correlations ranging from .70 to .88. Factor analysis (principal-axis method) provided a one-factor solution. The stability was .78 when retested with 21 participants at a 2-week interval. Estimation of construct validity used multiple regression to test a 4-stage theoretical model; the relationships of outcome expectancy and other study variables (pain intensity, affect, and self-efficacy beliefs) were as predicted, and 70% of the variance was explained. Findings suggest that the PMOEI shows promise as a valid and reliable instrument for measuring pain management expectations within the context of self-efficacy theory.
