Adaptación al español de la «Escala de apoyo social percibido específico para la enfermedad» de Revenson et al., 1991

María José Martos Méndez y Carmen Pozo Muñoz

Universidad de Almería

El presente estudio pretende analizar las propiedades psicométricas de la versión en castellano de la Escala de Apoyo Social percibido específico para la enfermedad de Revenson et al., 1991, utilizando como muestra 202 pacientes crónicos. Después de realizar varios análisis factoriales a las cuatro versiones de la escala (pareja, familia, amigos y sanitarios), se constata una estructura formada por dos factores que implican el apoyo social positivo y el apoyo social no funcional o problemático. Los resultados obtenidos a través del alfa de Cronbach muestran que todas las escalas tienen una consistencia interna aceptable y adecuada. En este sentido, la presente escala puede resultar idónea para identificar de manera apropiada el apoyo social percibido por los pacientes crónicos respecto a las cuatro fuentes de apoyo estudiadas.

Adaptation to Spanish of the «Scale of perceived social support specific to the disease» of Revenson et al., 1991. This study aims to analyze the psychometric properties of the Spanish version of the Scale of Perceived Social Support Specific to the Illness of Revenson et al. 1991. A sample of 202 patients with chronic conditions was used. After making several factor analysis of the scale on all four versions (partner, family, friends and doctors), it was found a structure formed by two factors involving positive social support and not functional or problematic social support. The results obtained with Cronbach’s alpha show that all scales have acceptable and adequate internal consistency. In this sense, this scale may be appropriate to identify properly perceived social support for chronic patients on the four sources of support studied.
