The translation and cultural adaptation validity of the Actual Scope of Practice Questionnaire
BACKGROUND: Information on the scope of nursing practice is urgently needed in the Eastern Mediterranean region to help policy makers and directors of nursing develop informed workforce plans. AIMS: This study aimed to validate the Arabic translation and cultural adaptation of the Actual Scope of Practice Questionnaire (A-ASCOP). METHODS: The process of translation and cultural validation adhered to WHO guidelines. The process involved forward translation, review by an expert panel, back-translation, pre-testing and cognitive interviewing. RESULTS: The clarity, meaningfulness and relevance of the first Arabic version of the A-ASCOP has been validated. CONCLUSION: Subject to psychometric analysis, the A-ASCOP is suitable for use in Lebanon and countries of the Middle Eastern region.
