Abstract

Purpose:

To translate and test the psychometric properties of the Turkish version of the Infertility Self-Efficacy Scale-Short Form (TISE-SF).

Methods:

The convenience sample consisted of 120 infertile women. A psychometric research design was used with content and construct validity and reliability.

Results:

Cronbach's alpha of .78 showed moderate reliability, whereas item-total correlations ranged from .30 to .54. Factor analysis extracted a single component, explaining 40.3% of the variance. Kendall W showed agreement with each expert regarding the appropriateness of the items, confirming the content validity of the translated TISE-SF.

Conclusion:

The results supported the construct validity and reliability of the TISE-SF for measuring infertility self-efficacy in a population of Turkish women.

Implications:

Evaluating infertile women's perception of self-efficacy with the TISE-SF may be useful in clinical studies in Turkey. TISE-SF can be used by professionals as a counseling tool to help guide women in managing their treatments at infertility centers.
