Background and Aim: World Health Organization (WHO) has prioritized cultural competence to provide high-quality healthcare and patient-centered services. Therefore, it is necessary to develop them for all organizational levels. The present study aimed to determine the validity and reliability of the Persian version of OHCC (Ontario Healthy Communities Coalition) organizational cultural competence (2005) instrument in Tehran University of Medical Sciences (TUMS).
Material and Methods: In order to confirm reliability, 143 staff members (nurses and physicians) in different administrative positions working in Imam Khomeini educational Hospital, completed the questionnaire. Modified HSR toolkit for translating and adapting instrument, was used for contextualizing the questionnaire: first, two medical education experts who were proficient in English translated it. Then, the content validity of Persian version was confirmed using Lawshe method (CVR and CVI = 0.79); its internal consistency was calculated by Cronbach's alpha coefficient (0.91). It was backward translated to compare with the original copy and was sent to experts for their approval. Construct validity was calculated by LISREL software and the result showed that the questions were fit to the domains. The KMO, calculated for this instrument, was 0.75 and α was less than 0.05.
Results: Content validity was confirmed by deleting two items from the original 22-item questionnaire. Cronbach's alpha was calculated as 0.95 following the removal of two items.
Conclusion: The organizational cultural competence instrument was confirmed to be valid and reliable with 20 items in Iranian context.
