LINO, Rafael Luis Bressani; OLIVEIRA, Suelen Alves de; SILVA, Kellyn Patrícia da  and  MACHADO, Regimar Carla.

Development and validation of the contents of a checklist to evaluate the qualification of health professionals in septic patient care with clinical simulation.


instrument validation study, with two-stage structural design: instrument construction and validation of the checklist contents using the Delphi technique in two rounds.


The content validation was composed of ten items and forty-three sub-items analyzed by the evaluators. Through the Content Validity Index, four items with strong validation evidence were identified, Content Validity Index ≥ 0.8. We restructured the checklist according to the evaluators recommendations, maintaining the ten items, but reducing them to twenty-six sub-items, which in the second round Delphi presented a percentage of agreement above 80% for all variables relevant to the instrument.


This method was effective to validate the checklist contents that will evaluate the qualification of health professionals in septic patient care, through clinical simulation.
