Psychometric properties of the Chinese version of Sense of Coherence Scale in women with cervical cancer

Psycho-Oncology, 04/30/2012

The factor validity, predictive validity and divergent validity of Chinese version of the Sense of Coherence Scale (C–SOC–13) were reasonable, as well as the internal consistency. In general, C–SOC–13 showed to be suitable as an SOC measurement for women with cervical cancer in Mainland China. However, SOC may have a different meaning to Chinese people because of the philosophy and culture that shape the context of their lives. Generalizing the findings to other populations requires further psychometric evaluation of C–SOC–13.
