Abstract

DEVELOPMENT OF BASIC LIFE SUPPORT KNOWLEDGE LEVEL AND APPLICATION SKILLS ASSESSMENT FORMS: VALIDITY AND RELIABILITY STUDY

Dr. Tuğba Gültekin* and Melek Ardahan

ABSTRACT

Background: Basic Life Support (BLS) consists of a series of life-saving actions that improve survival after cardiac arrest. The most important factor that increases the chance of survival is early and correct intervention. Nurses constitute an important group among health personnel in increasing survival rate after cardiopulmonary arrest. Purpose: The aim of the study is to develop basic life support knowledge level and application skills assessment forms, and to investigate their validity and reliability. Methods: This is a methodological study. The population of the study consisted of 302 nursing students studying at Faculty of Nursing. “Content Validity Index (CGI)” and Kendall’s W test were used for expert opinions. Kuder Richardson 20 coefficient was used for the reliability analysis of the forms. Results: The mean age of students participating in the study was 21.06 ± 1.20 years. 21.0% of the students were male and 79.0% were female. The content validity index of the basic life support knowledge level assessment form was above 0.90 and the expert opinions were significantly consistent with each other (p = 0.001). The content validity index of the basic life support application skills assessment form was found to be over 0.80 and the expert opinions were significantly consistent (p = 0.029). Kuder-Richardson 20 coefficient was over 0.80 and the forms was reliable (Kuder-Richardson 20 coefficient > 0.80). Conclusions: According to the results of the validity and reliability analyzes forms were found to be valid and reliable.
