Évaluation de la connaissance de la maladie et de l'observance thérapeutique des patients après un accident vasculaire cérébral

Abstract : INTRODUCTION : Knowledge of a disease and its treatments improve adherence to a behaviour modification and compliance. OBJECTIVE : To evaluate the knowledge of cerebrovascular disease and the level of compliance of patients with secondary prevention of stroke. Compare the results with the knowledge of a control population. METHOD : We took over a cohort of 494 patients hospitalized for stroke in the neuro-vascular department of Annecy's hospital between 11/01/08 and 03/31/10. Then, a cohort indicator of 222 patients encountered in general practice offices of Annecy's suburb between 05/07/12 and the 07/31/12. We asked them to answer a questionnaire. RESULTS : in the end, we were able to get answers of 213 patients and 220 witnesses. Patients know their diagnosis to a 75% rate but are insufficiently aware of their cerebrovascular risk factors. They don't know better clinical signs compatible with a stroke than witnesses and would have been even less likely to call the emergency medical service facing these same signs. Self-assessment of compliance is good to a 67.8% rate, but we didn't find a relationship between compliance and knowledge of diagnosis, or with the recognition of their cerebrovascular risk factors. CONCLUSION : The knowledge of disease of patients in secondary prevention of stroke is not optimal. The establishment of a multidisciplinary therapeutic education would seem interesting.
