Background: Teamwork in the health care domain is the preferred mode of care delivery. Few instruments have been developed to assess teamwork in the field of health care, particularly in Iran. This study aimed to validate the Persian version of the Team Assessment Questionnaire (P-TAQ) in care for Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) patients. Materials and Methods: In this cross-sectional study, the validity (face, content, and construct validity) and the reliability (internal consistency and stability) of the cross-cultural adaptation of the Persian version of the Team Assessment Questionnaire (P-TAQ) were assessed. Results: The P-TAQ had adequate face and content validity. The confirmatory factor analysis confirmed the seven dimensions of the questionnaire. The internal consistency of the P-TAQ was 0.91, and the Intraclass Correlation Coefficient (ICC) was 0.89. Conclusions: The P-TAQ is a valid questionnaire in terms of dimensions and items. Assessing teamwork is an essential component of delivering adequate care. By examining the status of teamwork using this questionnaire, it is possible to promote teamwork and to understand its strengths and weaknesses. Future research is necessary to better understand the P-TAQ so that it can be used for the assessment of teamwork outcomes regarding patient safety, cultural barriers, and medical errors.
