Cross-Cultural Adaptation and Validation of the COHIP-SF19 to be used in Brazil
MetadataShow full item record
OBJECTIVE: To carry out a cross-cultural adaptation and validation of the Child Oral Health Impact Profile - COHIP-SF 19 to be used in Brazil. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The adaptation process followed five stages: translation into Portuguese, synthesis of different translations, back-translation, expert panel analysis, and pre-final version testing. The final version was administered at two different moments to a sample of 100 schoolchildren aged 8-15 years in Criciúma, Brazil. The Brazilian version of the Child Perceptions Questionnaire (CPQ11-14) was administered as a comparison parameter. In both administrations of the questionnaire, factor analysis, principal component extraction, and factor rotation were performed. The internal validation was performed by using the α-Cronbach coefficient and the congruence coefficient between the rotated factors in the two administrations of the questionnaire. In order to analyze the external validity, the factors of the first administration of COHIP-SF 19 and CPQ11-14 factors were compared by using simple linear regression analysis and congruence coefficient. RESULTS: A Brazilian version of the questionnaire was obtained. The results of the internal validity analysis indicated adequate internal consistency and statistically significant internal congruence in the two factors identified in the factorial analysis. The linear regression analysis between the COHIP-SF 19 and CPQ11-14 showed weak correlations, and the congruence indices were not statistically significant. CONCLUSION: The Brazilian version of COHIP-SF 19 showed good internal consistency, but lacked external validity when compared to CPQ11-14.
