MARQUES, Rita Margarida Dourado; DIXE, Maria dos anjos; QUERIDO, Ana Isabel  y  SOUSA, Patricia Pontifice. Revalidation of the Holistic Comfort Questionnaire: Family for caregivers of people with advanced chronic disease. Rev. Enf. Ref. [online]. 2016, vol.serIV, n.11, pp.91-100. ISSN 0874-0283.  http://dx.doi.org/10.12707/RIV16060.

Background: Comfort is essential in nursing practice, so useful and valid assessment tools are required. Objectives: To analyze the psychometric properties of the Holistic Comfort Questionnaire - Family (HCQ-F) for the Portuguese population and assess the level of comfort among caregivers of people with advanced chronic disease. Methodology: A methodological study with a quantitative approach was conducted with 314 caregivers. The psychometric properties were analyzed using descriptive summary measures, item-total correlations, and Cronbach's alpha. Factor analysis was performed using varimax orthogonal rotation and extraction factors with eigenvalues > 1. Results: The internal consistency and factor analysis of the HCQ-F items resulted in the Holistic Comfort Questionnaire - Caregivers - Portugal (HCQ-C-PT) with 18 items that were distributed by 3 factors: relief, ease, and transcendence (α=.795). Conclusion: Based on validity and reliability results, the HCQ--C-PT proved to be suitable for assessing comfort in caregivers of people with advanced chronic disease.
