Abstract

Instrument measuring the family caregivers’ competency in meeting the needs of the persons diagnosed with schizophrenia when discharged and being in home is not been tested and presented anywhere in the literature. This study was carried out among family caregivers to develop and evaluate the psychometric properties of an instrument on home management care competency measurement in the form of a checklist. A mixed-methods design was adopted to develop and test the psychometric properties of Home Management Checklist-Schizophrenia (HMCL-S). A pool of 40 items formulated based on the review of literature and validated by the subject experts was tested among randomly selected 50 family caregivers for its psychometric evaluation. Final tool consisted of 32-items having dichotomous response having the content validity index of 0.87, and high internal consistency (Chronbach α = 0.84). The study findings suggest that the HMCL-S has sufficient reliability and validity to evaluate the family caregivers’ competency in meeting the needs of the persons diagnosed with schizophrenia
