Abstract

Purpose : This study evaluated whether a simple observational checklist can be used for in-situ corneoscleral disc excision certification.

Methods : This study was conducted from June 2018 to November 2019, developed in two stages. First, the checklist items were constructed through a detailed review of 48 Certified Eye Bank Technicians in Mexico for content validation. Second, this content was evaluated by 10 Medical Directors of Eye Banks in Mexico, by using a modified Delphi technique to determine the exact form of the items on the checklist. Finally, the checklist was divided into five sections, including donor examination, preparation of material for recovery, aseptic method, in-situ corneoscleral disc excision technique and completion of the procedure.
The data were analyzed using the Content Validity Index (CVI), Cronbach's α, and Fisher's Exact Test.
The validity of the checklist was reviewed using interrater reliability as well as by comparing the checklist-based results with objective performance data.

Results : We produced a checklist with 5 valid sections and reliable items (84% of CVI, Cronbach's α = 0.90). Suggestions for adjustments, such as deletion, replacement, and addition of terms, were included in the final version, which consisted of 44 items.
Regarding the checklist-based evaluation, interrater reliability depended on the checklist item; thus, some items were identified more easily and correctly than others.

Conclusions : Our findings indicate the grading checklists described are valid, reliable, and could be used in the certification of in-situ corneoscleral disc excision technique.
