To test the psychometric properties of the Greek version of the Hospital Ethical Climate Survey (HECS) in cancer care settings. Methods: This was a cross-sectional study with 235 cancer nurses. Principal component analysis (PCA) and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) were examined. Reliability was investigated with Cronbach's coefficient a. Results: Cronbach's α was 0.86 for the HECS total and ranged from 0.71 to 0.85 for the five subscales. PCA revealed that five components accounted for 61.09% of the variance which were comparable to those produced in the original validation study. The CFA with the five factors identified, produced a model with a good fit. Conclusion: The Greek version of the HECS is valid and reliable for use within the cancer care context.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/13463||ISSN:||10613749||DOI:||10.1891/1061-3718.104.22.168||Rights:||© 2018 Springer Publishing Company.||Type:||Article|
