Consequently, this study adopted a two-phase, exploratory sequential mixed methods design.The first phase was a qualitative exploration of nomophobia through semi-structured interviews conducted with nine undergraduate students at a large Midwestern university in the U. As a result of the first phase, four dimensions of nomophobia were identified: not being able to communicate, losing connectedness, not being able to access information and giving up convenience.In Study 2, 16 items fitted these criteria (alpha=.92; H=.45; omega=.93; mean 4.2 [SD 1.1]; range 1-7).Only 15 items remained in the questionnaire in both studies, thus we proceeded to the analyses of the questionnaire’s reliability and construct validity with a 15-item version of the virtual climate care questionnaire.Convergent validity of the resulting 15-item virtual climate care questionnaire was confirmed by positive associations with autonomous motivation (Study 1: r=.66, PThe virtual climate care questionnaire accurately assessed participants’ perceived autonomy-support offered by two Web-based health behavior change interventions.Overall, the scale showed the expected properties and relationships with relevant concepts, and the studies presented suggest this first version of the virtual climate care questionnaire to be reasonably valid and reliable.The aim of this study was to develop and validate a questionnaire for measuring the general knowledge about phytopreparations.The study was designed as an observational, prospective cross-sectional study, intended for the valiation of the original epidemiological questionnaire to evaluate the knowledge about phytopreparations.
This paper describes the development, performance and validation of the questionnaire.
Exploratory factor analysis revealed a four-factor structure for the NMP-Q, corresponding to the dimensions of nomophobia.
The NMP-Q was shown to produce valid and reliable scores; and thus, can be used to assess the severity of nomophobia.
Evaluation is a challenging but necessary part of the development cycle of clinical information systems like the electronic medical records (EMR) system.
It is believed that such evaluations should include multiple perspectives, be comparative and employ both qualitative and quantitative methods.
