MONTEIRO, Diully Siqueira et al. Validation of an educational technology for biosafety in primary health care. Rev Cuid [online]. 2019, vol.10, n.2, e654.  Epub Jan 09, 2020. ISSN 2216-0973.


Health biosafety actions are essential to promote and maintain well-being and the protection of life. Educational technologies are tools that can help facilitate the learning process, but it is necessary to measure their reliability in terms of content and form to use them.


This study aims to validate an educational technology for biosafety for its practical use among Primary Health Care professionals.

Materials and Methods

A methodological study to validate a biosafety device under evaluation by 11 experts and 13 healthcare professionals as the target audience. The Likert scale was used to collect data and analysis by simple descriptive statistical, Cronbach’s Alpha and ANOVA were implemented.


The evaluation of experts and target audience revealed rates of 85.7% and 92.46% respectively, demonstrating the high acceptability for all items in the scale. Cronbach’s alpha showed high-reliability indices of 0.971 and 0.934 for experts and target audience, respectively. ANOVA tested the hypothesis H0 and H1 and accepted H0 and no significant difference was found in the evaluation from experts and target audience in relation to the appropriation of the use of technology.


The technology was considered successful in relation to its objective, determining that its use is adequate to mediate the actions of professionals in their everyday practice.


The validation of the educational technology was successful, confirming its appropriateness and reliability as instrument.
