Abstract

MANRIQUE-ABRIL, Fred G.; HERRERA-AMAYA, Giomar Maritza  and  MENDEZ-FANDINO, Yardany Rafael. VALIDITY AND RELIABILITY OF THE FONT-ROJA JOB SATISFACTION QUESTIONNAIRE IN COLOMBIA. Hacia promoc. Salud [online]. 2019, vol.24, n.2, pp.46-59. ISSN 0121-7577.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17151/hpsal.2019.24.2.5.

Objective:

to determine the validity and reliability of Font-Roja job satisfaction questionnaire designed by Aranaz and Mira, 1988, to measure job satisfaction in health professionals in Colombia.

Methodology:

psychometric instrumental study that determined the facial validity of content and construct with statistical methods and reliability of the questionnaire. The sample (n = 120) for construct validity was collected by intern nurses linked with institutions providing health services in various cities of Colombia.

Results:

Font-Roja job satisfaction questionnaire reported validity higher than 0.71 in content and facial; 8 factors were extracted that explain 67.5% of the variance by factor analysis. The instrument is reliable with a Cronbach’s alpha of 0.80. It is necessary to maintain the scale in its entirety without deleting items.

Conclusion:

the Spanish version of Font-Roja job satisfaction questionnaire as an instrument to measure job satisfaction is valid and reliable in the Colombian context.

Keywords : Job satisfaction; health professional; Colombia; validity; reliability.
