Abstract

The general objective of this research was to determine the psychometric evidence of the complicated grief inventory adapted in relatives of the deceased by COVID - 19 of Lima East 2021. The sample consisted of 995 family members of deceased persons due to Covid-19, between 18 and 73 years of age, to whom the complicated Grief Inventory created by Prigerson (1995) was applied, adapted to the Colombian population by Gamba and Navia,1 the objective was to adapt the Complicated Grief Questionnaire to the Colombian population. A sample of 995 people was taken as a sample, 43.5 % women and 56.5 % men, average age up to 73 years (range = 18 to 73 years). Cronbach's alpha (a=.879), similar to the original test in English (a=.94) and higher than the Spanish adaptation (a=.88), as the inclusion of 21 items. Regarding the factorial structure of the test, the Kaiser Meyer - Olkin sample adequacy index (kmo=89) and Bartlett's test of sphericity (χ2=1702.133, p<.000), indicated that the factorial analysis was viable. Following the internal consistency method, Cronbach's alpha was .902, which is considered high reliability. It was possible to establish scales and percentiles of the psychometric evidence of the complicated grief inventory adapted in relatives of the deceased by COVID - 19 of Lima East 2021.
