Observations of judges were analyzed and when necessary items of the instrument were changed. Results: In content validation, the first version of the instrument had 32 items and most of them were considered adequate by judges and the I-CVI achieved was equal or above than 0.80. After changes, the instrument was composed by 21 items. In validation of the appearance, most of items achieved I-CVI equal or above 0.80.
