For the same reason, a trend exists to use well-validated and multidimensional scales. It was considered that the reagents optimally measured between 0.

Although countless instruments have been used to measure attitudes towards death, most of them are one-dimensional. Mohamed Ali W, Said N. In this study, principal component analysis PCA with varimax rotation was used. The sub-scale “fear xe one’s own death”, with a lower average score, ansoedad greater oscillations 1. Likewise, attitudes and emotional reactions can differ for oneself or for others. Reliability was studied through internal consistency, using Cronbach’s alpha coefficient.

The psychometric characteristics exhibited based on a sample of nursing students and health professionals were as follows: In Chile, some instrument have been used, but these do not display adequate reliability and do templrr measure the death phenomenon as a state and, in turn, as a process, in a multidimensional way Actitud del profesional de enfermeria ante la muerte de los pacientes.


Regarding CLFODS reliability, its internal consistency or homogeneity was demonstrated through a high Etmpler alpha coefficient for the global scale as well as for each sub-scale of the original Scale, similar to the results obtained in studies that used the same instrument in a student population from Kuwait 21Nigeria 10 and Spain 12, How to cite this article.

Moreover, the reliability of the original scale was assessed, followed by exploratory factor analysis. Criterion and construct validity of the instrument was analyzed involving the definitive sample The results point towards a reconceptualization, which considers fear of one’s own death and fear of one’s own dying process as one physical and another psychological dimension. Colell R, Limonero G.

To perform the psychometric assessment of the CLFODS, re, the Scale was submitted to expert review to guarantee the understanding of the items, followed by a pilot test of the instrument, in which 30 participants showed good understanding of the scale. Saturations higher than 0. A better adjustment of the models should be evaluated in the future through new exploratory factor analyses. Fear; Death; Scales; Reliability; Validity. The highest mean scores indicate greater fear of death or the dying process Next, ina revised version was published that included the same number of items in each sub-scale 32 items.

Fscala, the Spanish version demonstrated convergent and discriminant validity through a positive correlation with anxiety towards death and general anxiety The magnitude of the relation reflects that it measures similar constructs. Also, in the five factors, the alpha coefficient decreased if the item was eliminated. What the students fear less is their own death. Discriminant validity was documented.


In recent years, Collett-Lester’s 2, multidimensional fear of death instrument has been validated in several cultural contexts, evidencing acceptable psychometric characteristics. Lester D, Abdel-Khalek A. Spanish Adaptation of the Collet-Lester fear of death scale.

The fear of death end the fear of dying.

Validation of Collett-Lester’s Fear of Death Scale in a sample of nursing students

Thus, four sub-scales were distinguished: The first limitation is the mainly female and young sample in a similar educational situation, characteristics that are repeated in most studies analised for this study. Their disadvantage is that they do not permit the identification and distinction of specific elements involved in fears of death.

The correlation matrix, in turn, evidences that, in sub-scale 1: The highest score per sub-scale corresponded to the fear of other people’s death Table 1. Various authors have tried to replicate its factor muerge using PCA and varimax rotation, finding different results. Mac Graw Hill; Finally, exploratory factor analysis was accomplished, which permitted proving whether the factors and variables that constitute the scale are in line with the pre-established theory of multidimensionality
