ObjectivesThis study aimed to develop the Chinese version of the Perceived Barriers to Health Care-seeking Decision (PBHSD-C) and evaluate its psychometric properties in Chinese patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS).BackgroundThe assessment of the level of perceived barriers in the care-seeking trajectory of ACS patients is important for the understanding of its impact on pre-hospital delay in seeking care.MethodsThe psychometric properties of PBHSD-C were evaluated among 114 ACS patients in the cardiac unit of two major hospitals in Hong Kong.ResultsThe Content Validity Indexes were ranged from .88 to 1. The Cronbach's alpha of the PBHSD-C was .74. The intraclass correlation coefficients of all items were above .80. The convergent validity of the PBHSD-C was also supported.ConclusionThe PBHSD-C is reliable and valid to be used to assess the level of perceived barriers in the care-seeking of Chinese patients with ACS.
