Evaluación del estigma hacia pacientes con cáncer: una aproximación psicométrica

Julio C. Penagos-Corzo, Sheila Pintado Cucarella

Resumen


El objetivo del presente estudio fue determinar las propiedades psicométricas de un cuestionario para evaluar el estigma hacia personas con cáncer, en una muestra de 1340 estudiantes universitarios mexicanos. El análisis factorial exploratorio indicó tres elementos: Discriminación, Imposibilidad de recuperación y Estereotipos para pacientes con cáncer. La consistencia interna del instrumento indica una adecuada confiabilidad para el total del instrumento. El análisis factorial confirmatorio arrojó un óptimo ajuste, lo que sugiere su idoneidad para evaluar el estigma.
