      Abstract

      Purpose

      This research aims to adapt the Surgical Anxiety Questionnaire (SAQ) to Turkish culture and conduct validity and reliability studies.

      Design

      This research is a methodological study.

      Methods

      The sample of the research consisted of 311 patients and research data were collected between April 2019 and May 2021.

      Findings

      The scale content validity index was 0.931. As a result of the factor analysis, the items were distributed in four subdimensions and explained 58.745% of the variance, and the model had good fit values. The Cronbach's α coefficient of the scale was 0.890.

      Conclusions

      The Turkish version of SAQ is a valid and reliable measurement tool and can be used for adult patients.
