Then cognitive debriefing interviews were performed (seven female; mean age 39 years).
Due attention was paid to three items in the cognitive debriefing interviews (CDIs), in which both the bilingual and lay panel translations were presented to patients for consideration.
Translation process usually involves forward and backward translation, committee review, cognitive debriefing
and pilot testing of the target language version of the scale (Beaton, Bombardier, Guillemin and Ferraz, 2000; ITC, 2010; MAPI, 2012; Sousa and Rojjanasrirat, 2010).
Cognitive debriefing Aimed to certify that the instructions and items were comprehensible to the target population.
For cognitive debriefing process, nine children classified the instructions and all the eight items of CRIES, accordingly to their understanding.
(2006) found technical debriefing to be slightly better than cognitive debriefing
among emergency department residents.
The developer's contributions were then discussed with the expert group before the cognitive debriefing (pilot testing).
In order to choose 8 patients for the cognitive debriefing, 21 patients were selected from the GATA Haydarpasa Training Hospital Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMR) Department's outpatient records.
Review of Cognitive Debriefing Results and Finalization
The project manager, the other PMR specialist and the physiotherapist reviewed the results of the cognitive debriefing and discussed translation modifications in relation to respondents' comments in order to improve the accuracy of the translation.
The pilot version of the MAL-28 was then deemed ready for cognitive debriefing.
