Resumen

LAGOS G., María Elena; SALAZAR M., Alide  y  SALAS F., Patricio. Assessment of a Chilean Spanish version of the Patient Assessment of Chronic Illness Care Questionnaire. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2017, vol.145, n.7, pp.869-878. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/s0034-98872017000700869.

Background:

The Patient Assessment of Chronic Illness Care (PACIC) questionnaire is a widely used instrument to assess chronic disease care from a patient's perspective.

Aim:

To adapt the PACIC questionnaire to Chilean Spanish and to evaluate the psychometric properties of the translation.

Material and Methods:

Descriptive, cross-sectional design with exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis. The PACIC questionnaire was applied, throughout an external client, to 200 users who received health care at the cardiovascular program in a Family Health Center in Concepción, Chile.

Results:

The confirmatory factor analysis did not show a good adjustment with the proposed structure in the original instrument. An exploratory factor analysis revealed five factors explaining 58% of total data variability. The distribution of the factor-items of the original questionnaire underwent some modifications, which are explained when analyzing the theoretical construct. A good reliability of the global scale was obtained (Cronbach's α 0.886).

Conclusions:

The PACIC questionnaire, Chilean version does not replicate the proposed structure of the original questionnaire. Therefore, further research about its validity, incorporating a higher number or diversity of participants is recommended.
