Moreover, the reliability of the original scale was assessed, followed by exploratory factor analysis. Hence, as the Fear of death increases, so does the unfavorable Attitude toward death.
Finally, the results provide evidence of the possible impact the cultural differences between Spanish-speaking nations and generations have on the psychometric properties of the scale.
Colell R, Limonero G. Finally, the results provide evidence of the possible impact the cultural differences between Spanish-speaking nations and generations have on the psychometric properties of the scale Keywords: The highest mean scores indicate greater fear of death or the dying process In Chile, some instrument have been used, but these do not display tempper reliability and muefte not measure the death phenomenon as ed state and, in turn, as a process, in a multidimensional way The availability of valid instruments addressing fears of death permit research that helps to visualize one construct and factor at a time, which antte considered determinant for people’s end-of-life quality of care 6 and quality of life Various authors have tried to replicate its factor structure using PCA and varimax rotation, finding different results.
Another study that also used the forced four-factor solution of PCA with varimax rotation equally shows significant loads like the factors in the previous study.
Nevertheless, the study limitations should be taken into account.
Validation of Collett-Lester’s Fear of Death Scale in a sample of nursing students
Thus, four sub-scales were distinguished: Reliability was studied through internal consistency, using Cronbach’s alpha coefficient. Although countless instruments have been used to measure attitudes towards death, most of them are one-dimensional.
Fear of death cannot be directly observed, which is why it should be inferred based on a subject’s conduct or self-reported answers. However, to confirm the multidimensionality hypothesis of the scale proposed in theory and to seek the best adjustment, the researchers decided to submit the PCA results to a varimax rotation. Espinoza M Sanhueza O. Dying of self, shows correlations higher than 0. Introduction Fear of death cannot be directly observed, which is why it should be inferred based on a subject’s conduct or self-reported answers.

A total of subjects were interviewed, of whom were elderly adults 97 women, average age The Attitude Toward Death Scale ATD measures the favorable or unfavorable attitude towards death, designed with 43 Likert-type items ranging from 1 to 5. These dimensions could escalla new conceptualizations of the construct, which would guide the elaboration muertd an appropriate instrument for the Chilean culture. Fear; Death; Scales; Reliability; Validity.
Inthose l in each sub-scale that did not contribute to the significance of Cronbach’s alpha were eliminted, resulting in a final item version 3. The other two factors partially load the sub-scales Results Univariate analysis of the Fear of death variables reflects a trend near the normal curve.
The correlation matrix, in turn, evidences that, in sub-scale 1: In recent years, Collett-Lester’s 2, multidimensional fear of death instrument has been validated in several cultural contexts, evidencing acceptable psychometric characteristics.
The reliability and item-element total correlation analysis of these five factors shows that the total-item correlations exceeded 0. Services on Demand Journal. Mac Graw Hill; Also, in the five factors, the alpha coefficient decreased if the item was eliminated.

To perform the psychometric assessment of the CLFODS, first, the Scale was submitted to ds review to guarantee the understanding of the items, followed by a pilot test of the instrument, anye which 30 participants showed good understanding of the scale.
Actitud del profesional de enfermeria ante la muerte de los pacientes. Lester Dee, Abdel-Khalek A. How to cite this article. Sub-scale 3 Death of others displays a low correlation of 0. The Fear of Death Scale possesses good internal consistency and construct validity, confirmed by the significant correlation with the Attitude toward death Scale.
The results point towards a lx, which considers fear of one’s own death and fear of one’s own dying process as one physical and another psychological dimension. De cara a la muerte: How to cite this article. J Med Biomed Sci. The initial results before the rotation identified five factors, which summarize The answers are given on a 1 nothing to 5 much Likert scale. The Fear of death Scale and the Attitude toward death Scale were self-applied before the start of a class.
In total, it contains 28 lq, grouped in four sub-scales with seven items tekpler. The reliability coefficients continue without significant variations when eliminating these elements though, which is why none of the elements can be eliminated to strengthen the scale.
