Background & Objective: Down syndrome is the most common type of chromosomal abnormality that causes mental disability. In recent years, the life expectancy of these children has increased, so their special needs will also increase. Family-centered interventions are of particular importance for the provision of services to children and their families. There are several tools for measuring family-centered services from the perspective of parents and service providers. But the Persian version of validity and reliability is not found in information resources. Therefore, the aim of this study was to translate and standardize the Persian version of the questionnaire for measure of process of care for service providers (MPOC-SP) in children with Down Syndrome in Isfahan.
Materials & Methods: The original version of the Measure of process of care for service providers (MPOC-SP) in a cross-sectional study was translated in three stages. A final version of Persian was provided. Experts' opinions and Kappa agreement coefficient were used to examine the face and content validity. To determine the reliability of the Persian version, by random sampling, 83 occupational therapists, general practitioners and psychiatrists were selected and test-retest was administered. Finally, the data were analyzed using SPSS 19 software, Cronbach's alpha and intra-cluster correlation coefficient, and multi factors analysis.
Results: The internal consistency of the four domains of the questionnaire was obtained using Cronbach's alpha between 0.778 and 0.881. The reliability values ​​were within the cluster correlation index between 0.75 and 0.83. The correlation between the four domains was favorable on the basis of Spearman correlation coefficient. The correlation of each of the questions with the four fields of the questionnaire in multi factors analysis (0.72-0.87) was also appropriate
Conclusion: The Persian version of measure of process of care for service providers in children with Down Syndrome with 27 items and in four different areas has a good validity and reliability as a tool for evaluating the provision of services in all centers for providing services to children with Down Syndrome.
