Introduction: Cultural competency is a term that is widely used regarding health care providers around the world. As a consequence, a plethora of new instruments have been introduced in order to describe, evaluate and measure the new term of cultural competence. Objective: This study aimed to determine the validity and reliability of the Clinical Cultural Competency Questionnaire-Greek version (CCCQ-G) among Healthcare Professionals. Methods: Two hundred and twenty (220) health professionals, from three (3) general pediatric hospitals in Greece completed the questionnaire. Internal consistency was determined and convergent validity was further examined with the intercorrelations of subscales. The structure of the questionnaire was investigated using factor analysis. Results: Analysis resulted in a six-factor solution, explaining 55 % of the variance. All subscales resulting from the factor analysis had alphas that ranged from 0.71 to 0.91. Correlations among the scales were all statistically significant. Higher scores in most subscales were observed for health care professionals who had attended transcultural health courses. Conclusions: The Greek version of CCCQ was found to possess good reliability and validity, therefore, the instrument could be used in future research studying cultural competence of health care professionals.
