PurposeThe purpose of the study was to develop and validate the Chinese Version of Spiritual Interests Related Illness Tool (C-SpIRIT) for patients with cancer in Taiwan.MethodsTranslation, adaptation, and content validation were performed based on the 44-item Spiritual Interests Related Illness Tool. The psychometric validation was conducted based on 260 participants who were recruited from the oncology outpatient clinic of a medical center in southern Taiwan. The data were analyzed using exploratory factor analysis, Cronbach's alpha, and Pearson's correlations.ResultsFive subscales (related to beliefs/religion, positive attitudes toward life, love to/from others, seeking for the meaning of life, and peaceful mind) were extracted from an exploratory factor analysis. The five subscales (with 21 items) accounted for 50.43% of the variance. The evidence based on concurrent validity was supported by a significant correlation (r = 0.95) between the 33-itm C-SpIRIT and the 21-item C-SpIRIT. Cronbach's α values (0.73–0.88) demonstrated internal item consistency of the C-SpIRIT.ConclusionsThis preliminary 21-item and 5-factor constructed C-SpIRIT demonstrated a valid and reliable instrument to assess the spiritual needs of patients with cancer in Taiwan. In addition, it is a handy tool for oncology nursing practitioners to gage their patients' spiritual needs.
