FABIANO K.; KIENEN, Nádia  and  SCARINCI, Isabel C.. Propriedades psicométricas do Brief Smoking Consequences Questionnaire (BSCQ-A) em mulheres brasileiras. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2019, vol.21, n.1, pp. 69-84. ISSN 1516-3687.

Outcome expectancy has been suggested as a promising construct in effective tobacco cessation programs. We studied the psychometric properties of the Brief Smoking Consequences Questionnaire - Adult (BSCQ-A), a questionnaire designed to assess expectancies related to cessation of industrialized cigarette use. The participants were 323 adult Brazilian women who reported smoking cigarettes at least once per week. Assessments included questions associated with tobacco use, the Fagerström Test for Nicotine Dependence, and the BSCQ-A. Results from confirmatory factor analyses showed adequate factor structure, albeit with lower reliability indices for most of the subscales than obtained by the original authors. Our findings suggested a final version containing 21 (rather than 25) items, and 9 sub-scales (rather than 10 originally proposed). The translated version of BSCQ-A can prove useful in the development and implementation of gender-relevant tobacco cessation efforts among Brazilian women.

Keywords : outcome expectancy; BSCQ-A; Brazilian women; factorial analysis; psychometrics.
