Abstract [en]

Students’ attitudes and educational needs regarding sexual health are important, since their ability to promote sexual health in their future profession can be challenged by their attitudes and knowledge of sexuality and sexual health. There are no existing Danish instruments able to measure students’ attitudes towards working with and communicating about sexual health; thus, to be able to use the Students’ Attitudes Towards Addressing Sexual Health (SA-SH) questionnaire in a Danish context, it is necessary to translate and test the translated questionnaire psychometrically. The aim of the project was to translate and psychometrically test the Danish version of the SA-SH. Translation and psychometric testing of a Danish version of the SA-SH included testing of internal consistency reliability, content validity construct validity, and analysis of floor and ceiling effects. The Danish version of the SA-SH (SA-SH-D) had a Cronbach’s alpha of 0.67. The content validity index showed high relevance (item context validity index 0.82–1.0), and item scale correlation was satisfactory. The SA-SH-D is a valid and reliable questionnaire, which can be used to measure health care professional students’ attitudes towards working with sexual health in their future profession. © 2016, Springer Science+Business Media New York.
