Objective: Bioethical questions have been raised among community health workers in terms of the perceptions and threats that they face during their daily labor practices. Thus, questionnaires are required for assessing the issues experienced by these workers and the psychological effects experienced by primary care workers Therefore, this study demonstrates the reliability of a double scale based on a pilot study involving community health workers. Methods: A scale-based and validated methodological investigation was developed by including 97 community health workers in the Brazilian cities of Riacho Fundo I and Riacho Fundo II, located within the administrative region of Brasilia. Results: The perception scale's internal consistency exhibited good Cronbach's alpha values (0.76 overall and >0.75 for the different dimensions). Furthermore, the factor analysis presented a 3-factor solution with ratio significance. Conclusion: The scale exhibits good reliability and psychometric properties and has potential for use in future research.
