AIM: The aim of this study was to test the psychometric properties of the Turkish version of the Patient Education Materials Assessment Tool

METHODS: The study was carried out with intern nurses receiving education at a Nursing Faculty in Turkey between July 2019 and June 2020. 248 intern nurses participated in PEMAT-P and 223 in PEMAT-A/V in this study. Five audio-visual and five printed materials were used. The Patient Education Materials Assessment Tool and the Patient Education Materials Assessment Tool User’s Guide were translated into Turkish and culturally adapted using standard guidelines. Content and construct validity analyses were performed for the validity of the Turkish version of the Patient Education Materials Assessment Tool, and internal consistency, invariability, and external consistency analyses were performed for its reliability.

RESULTS: The content validity index was 1.00 for all the scale items. At the conclusion of the factor analyses, the scale has composed a twodimension construct of understandability and actionability. The Cronbach’s alpha coefficients were observed to be 0.901 of the Turkish version of the Patient Education Materials Assessment Tool for Printable Materials and 0.897 of the Turkish version of the Patient Education Materials Assessment Tool for Audiovisual Materials. The Pearson Product-Moment Correlation Coefficient (rxy) was high (Turkish version of the Patient Education Materials Assessment Tool for Printable Materials rxy=0.815, Turkish version of the Patient Education Materials Assessment Tool for Audiovisual Materials rxy=0.804). Cohen’s kappa coefficients were obtained as 0.736 of the Turkish version of the Patient Education Materials Assessment Tool for Printable Materials and 0.781 of the Turkish version of the Patient Education Materials Assessment Tool for Audiovisual Materials.

CONCLUSION: The Turkish version of the Patient Education Materials Assessment Tool is a valid and reliable measurement tool in the evaluation of both printed and audiovisual patient education materials.
