Galhardo, A., Cunha, M., & Pinto-Gouveia, J. (2013)General Description
The Infertility Self-Efficacy Scale (ISE) encompasses 16 items assessing the way infertile patients perceive their abilities to face infertility and the strains of medical treatment. The confirmatory factor analysis of the Portuguese version of the ISE presented, like its original version, an interpretable single component structure, excellent estimated internal consistency, good test–retest reliability, convergence with similar scales and ability to discriminate based on dissimilar scales and demographic and clinical characteristics. Findings support the cognitive-affective regulation single-factor structure.
