Background and Aims: Given that children spend a significant portion of their time with their parents, they are a rich source of information about their children. Therefore, it is essential to use some instruments to get informed about parents' ideas and experiences for clinical and research purposes. Accordingly, the present study aimed to evaluate the psychometric properties of the Persian version of Parents' Views and Experiences with pediatric Cochlear Implant Questionnaire (PVECIQ).
Materials and Methods: The present study is a test development and descriptive-analysis conducted with a non-interventional and cross-sectional design. Statistical population included all children who were undergoing cochlear implant in Azzahra Hospital. A total of 73 children (28 boys and 45 girls), who had at least one year of experience of using cochlear implant, were selected from this population using convenience sampling.The Parents' Views and Experiences with pediatric Cochlear Implant Questionnaire (PVECIQ) was used for data collection. After making sure about the content validity, the data were analyzed using the correlation of PVECIQ sub-sections, Cronbach's alpha coefficient, and test-retest reliability in SPSS22.
Results: The Content Validity Indices in all items were higher than 0.75. The minimum and maximum CVI were 0.76 and 0.1, respectively. The correlations among sub-sections were positive and significant in most cases. Cronbach's alpha coefficient for the sub-sections of the questionnaire ranged between 0.74 and 0.83 and the Cronbach's alpha coefficient for the total questionnaire was found to be 0.77. The test-retest reliability of the sub-sections of PVECIQ also ranged between 0.85 and 0.97.
Conclusion: According to the results of the present study, it seems that the Iranian version of Parents' Views and Experiences with pediatric Cochlear Implant Questionnaire (PVECIQ) has adequate reliability and validity.
