Instrument or Tool Validation

Face validity, or the extent to which an instrument looks as it measures what it is supposed to measure, and content validity, the degree to which items in a tool adequately represents the content of the concept being measured (Polit et al., 2012), may be scrutinized through the assistance of experts.

Intervention Validation

For a specific intervention to be successful on a target population while avoiding or at least minimizing potential risks, certain technicalities must be assessed, refined, and modified.
