Description
The aim of this study was to develop a Japanese version of the Cancer Worry Scale (CWS-J) using a university student sample. Results showed that CWS-J had a one factor structure. An internal consistency check and test-retest correlation indicated that the scale had sufficient reliability. Although part of convergent validity was not sufficiently established, correlations with the Penn State Worry Questionnaire, Short Health Anxiety Inventory and Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale were mostly consistent with the hypothesis, which generally supports the discriminatory and convergent validity of CWS-J. These results indicated that the scale has the required reliability and validity to measure university students’ cancer worry.
