REITEROVÁ, E. – MIKŠOVÁ, Z. – DŽURŇÁKOVÁ, A. – PRUŠOVÁ, E. The specific aspects of validity and reliability of the Czech version of “Partners in health scale”.

Aim: The aim of this quantitative study is to introduce the Czech version of the PIH scale and the specific aspects of validity and reliability. The partial objectives are the factor structure of the scale, its reliability and validity, and subsequent verification of the possible application of the scale on the Czech population and the evaluation of other results obtained using the exploratory factor analysis.

Methods: The study describes language validation PIH scale and psychometrically characterizes the PIH scale on the group of 230 patients with chronic cardiovascular disease. The results are calculated using descriptive statistics, reliability analysis, factor analysis and programs Excel and IBM SPSS.

Results: The exploratory factor analysis shows four-factor solution. The value of Cronbach’s alpha 0.91 shows a high reliability of the PIH scale. The split-half reliability 0.83 and test-retest reliability 0.81 shows its good reliability.

Conclusion: The results of the study provide information on the factor solution and the PIH scale reliability which confirm its good psychometric characteristics. It has been confirmed that the PIH scale is suitable for use in the clinical conditions of the Czech Republic healthcare.

The research is supported by the project IGA_FZV_2017_003 Psychometric validation of PIH scale in patients with chronic cardiovascular disease.

Keywords: self-management, chronic cardiovascular disease, PIH scale, reliability, validation, exploratory factor analysis
