    Abstract

    Purpose: Vietnamese American women diagnosed with cervical cancer are more likely to have advanced cancer than non-Hispanic White women. We sought to (a) develop a culturally sensitive Vietnamese translation of the Revised Susceptibility, Benefits, and Barriers Scale; Cultural Barriers to Screening Inventory; Confidentiality Issues Scale; and Quality of Care from the Health Care System Scale and (b) examine the psychometric properties. Design: Cross-sectional study with 201 Vietnamese immigrant women from the Portland, Oregon, metropolitan area. Method: We used a community-based participatory research approach and the U.S. Census Bureau's team approach to translation. Results: Cronbach's alpha ranged from.57 to.91. The incremental fit index ranged from.83 to.88. Discussion and Conclusions: The instruments demonstrated moderate to strong subscale internal consistency. Further research to assess structural validity is needed. Implications for Practice: Our approaches to translation and psychometric examination support use of the instruments in Vietnamese immigrant women.
