Abstract :

This study aimed to conduct the reliability and validity study of the prostate cancer fatalism inventory in Turkish language. The study was carried out in methodological type and consisted of 171 men. The age of the participants ranged between 40 and 82. The content validity index was determined to be 0.80, Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin value 0.825, Bartlettâ??s test X2=750.779 and p=0.000. Then the principal component analysis was applied to the 15-item inventory. The Inventory consisted of one dimension and the load factors were over 0.30 for all items. The explained variance of the inventory was found 33.3%. The Kuder-Richardson-20 coefficient was determined to be 0.849 and the item-total correlations ranged between 0.335-0.627. The prostate cancer fatalism inventory was a reliable and valid measurement tool in Turkish language. Integrating psychological strategies for prostate cancer screening may be required to strengthen the positive effects of nursing education.
