The mean fear of death score among the nursing students was moderate-high. The principal templler analysis with varimax rotation, applied to the data from both samples elderly adults and undergraduate studentsyielded 3 factors for each group.

Validation of Collett-Lester’s Fear of Death Scale in a sample of nursing students

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.

Nevertheless, the study limitations should be taken into account. Therefore, the factor solution found based on this scale does not exclude the existence of other solutions in distinct samples.

The Scale secala created in to eliminite the content heterogeneity problem of the items in the scales used to measure fear of escaal.

The rest of the items display significant loads in the structures anfe to the initial dimensions. The psychometric characteristics exhibited based on a sample of nursing students and health professionals were as follows: Also, for each sub-scale, the obtained Cronbach’s alpha coefficients permit guaranteeing that the items or elements are homogeneous and that the scale consistently measures the characteristic for which it was elaborated Table 2.

The initial results before the rotation identified five factors, which summarize The magnitude of the relation reflects that it ansedad similar constructs. Dying of self, shows correlations higher than 0. 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. In this study, principal component analysis PCA with varimax rotation was used.


Likewise, attitudes and emotional reactions can differ for oneself or for others. Hence, they are reliable and show construct validity. How to cite this article.

To perform the psychometric assessment of the CLFODS, first, the Scale was submitted to expert review to guarantee the understanding of the items, followed by a pilot test of the instrument, in which 30 participants showed good understanding of the scale.

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.

Factor analysis partially supports content validity of the subscale items, but presented a modified multidimensional structure that points towards the reconceptualization of the subscales in this sample.

This study identified five factors with muert reliable structure, like the original scale. Templers death anxiety scale. For the same reason, a trend exists to use well-validated and multidimensional scales. A sample of nursing students answered Fear of Death and Attitude toward death scales. He concludes that consistent loads are observed for two factors, corresponding to “death of self” and “dying of self”.

The author justifies the range of results found regarding factor structure in this final investigation, due to the correlation that exists among the sub-scales, which in turn would give rise to an escaa correlation that would create a bystander factor of factor loads Spanish Adaptation of the Collet-Lester fear of death scale.

Usos del Coeficiente alfa de Cronbach. Next, ina revised version was published that included the tmpler number of items in each sub-scale 32 items. The fear of death end the fear of dying. Constructions of death and loss: Content validity was checked by expert review; reliability was proven using Cronbach’s alpha; statistical analysis of the items, correlation between items and construct validity were checked by the correlation of the Antte with the Attitude toward death Scale.

How to cite this article. The other two factors partially load the sub-scales The sub-scale “fear of one’s own death”, with a lower average score, shows greater oscillations dscala. Finally, exploratory factor analysis was accomplished, which permitted proving whether the factors and variables that templef the scale are in line with the pre-established theory of multidimensionality Scores are obtained for the total scale and for each sub-dimension, calculating the average of the respective answers.


These dimensions could comprise new conceptualizations of the construct, which would guide the elaboration of an appropriate instrument for the Chilean culture. On Death and Dying. Sub-scale 4 dying of others shows correlations that vary between more approximate levels, ranging from wscala.

In total, it contains 28 items, grouped in four sub-scales with seven items each. Reliability was studied through internal consistency, using Cronbach’s alpha coefficient.

Their disadvantage is that they do not permit the identification and distinction of specific elements involved in fears of death. Ethical aspects of this research were guaranteed through review and approval by the Institutional Review Board of the School of Medicine and the Nursing Department Head. Results Univariate analysis of the Fear of death xnte reflects a trend near the normal curve. Mac Graw Hill; The convergence of the four sub-scales, in turn, offers a certain degree of support mierte the validity of the CLFODS dimensions.

J Med Biomed Sci. 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: Fear; Death; Scales; Reliability; Validity. The other correlations of element pairs range between 0. It was considered that the reagents optimally measured between 0. Regarding CLFODS reliability, its internal consistency or homogeneity was demonstrated through muertte high Cronbach’s alpha coefficient for the global scale as well as for each sub-scale of the original Scale, similar to the results obtained in studies that used the same instrument in a student population from Kuwait 21 tekpler, Nigeria 10 and Spain 12, Cronbach’s alpha coefficients for each of the five factors investigated all exceeded 0.

Moreover, the average inter-element correlation demonstrates a positive relation in each of the sub-scales.
