LATORRE ROMAN, Pedro Ángel  and  PANTOJA VALLEJO, Antonio. Design and validation of a propensity to sports accident questionnaire (PAD-22). CPD [online]. 2013, vol.13, n.1, pp.51-62. ISSN 1989-5879.

The purpose of this study was to design and validate a scale of the accident prone sports athletes. The sample has been formed by 118 athletes (22.42 ± 4.01 years old). The psychometric properties of the scale were obtained through a content validity´s process, concurrent validity with the scale SSS-V and factorial analysis of main components. As a result we obtained a 22-item questionnaire formed by five factors and adjusted to scientific validity and reliability´s topics. They found significant differences (p <.05) and gender in sport practiced on the scale PAD-22 and SSS-V.

Keywords : Accident; sports; risk; propensity.
