  Materials and Methods: This study had two phases. 1- Determine the face validity and reliability of the NASA-TLX (to assess the workload) by Backward Translation method and Cronbach's alpha method. 2–Designing the performance obstacles and facilitators questionnaire by interview and pilot study.

  Results: Face validity and reliability of NASA-TLX method was confirmed (α=0.897). The performance obstacles and facilitators questionnaire for ICU nurses provides in 53 questions and 10 subscales. Relevancy is 97% and Clarity is 96%. Overall, 90% of nurses assessment comprehensiveness of the questionnaire was very comprehensive and comprehensive.
