What is the translation of HSCL-25 in Castilian; A consensus procedure by Delphi-round and Forward-Backward translation

Abstract : Introduction: General Practitioners (GPs) are the first port of call for depressive patients in developed countries. The multi-morbid patients over 50 years are more at risk. Inter-individual and intercultural variations may change the symptoms expression. Few diagnostic tools are adapted and used by GPs. Family Practice Depression and Multimorbidity (FPDM) study by European General Practice Research Network (EGPRN) aims to select a depression diagnostic tool in primary care to undertake collaborative research involving GP’s and Psychiatrists throughout Europe. The two previous steps of FPDM found that the Hopkins Symptom Checklist in 25-items (HSCL-25) was the most appropriate tool according to effectiveness, reproducibility and ergonomics criteria versus DSM. Objective: This study aimed to translate HSCL-25 in Castilian, keeping its meaning. This translation must be understandable by practitioners and patients, according to Castilian cultural and linguistic features. Method: A Delphi method adapted for a Forward-Backward translation was used. The Forward translation from English to Castilian was submitted by Delphi procedure to a panel of primary care experts. The Backward translation was performed blind. Results: The inclusion criteria of panel were followed. The Castilian translation was accepted in one round. English back-translation was produced. Discussion: Delphi method adapted for a Forward-Backward translation and the experts panel quality ensured a validated and reliable Castilian translation of the HSCL-25. The following step will consist in a cross-cultural check. Concordance between the original HSCL-25 and the Back-translation will be analysed.
