Consensus d’experts sur une traduction en français d’une échelle d’auto-évaluation de la dépression, a “Hopkins Symptom Checklist 25” via une procédure Delphi et une traduction retour en anglais

Abstract : Introduction: Family physicians (FP) are the first port of call for depressive patients in developed countries. The multi-morbid patients over 50 years are especially at risk. Symptoms are difficult to identify. Few diagnostic tools are adapted and used by FP. “Family Practice Depression and Multimorbidity” (FPDM) study by “European General Practice Research Network” (EGPRN) aims to find a diagnostic depression tool in primary care throughout Europe. Previous steps of FPDM have found that the “Hopkins Symptom Checklist in 25-items” (HSCL-25) was the most appropriate tool against DSM. Objective: This study aimed to translate HSCL-25 in French while ensuring that original meaning was preserved and adapted for patients. Method: A Delphi method was used. The HSCL-25 was translated into French by a linguist and a researcher in FP. This translation was submitted by Delphi procedure to a panel of French FP’s experts in primary care, English practitioners. Backward translation was performed with a blind back-translation principle. Results: The inclusion criteria of panel were followed. FP’s have been recruited for the Delphi procedure with majority of teachers. The procedure was respected with a minimum of fifteen experts for each round. HSCL-25 French translation was confirmed in two Delphi rounds, with some translated modification due to the expert remarks. The backward English translation was therefore produced by translators. Discussion: The quality of the panel of FPs experts ensured a validated and reliable linguistic French translation. The following step will consist in a cultural check to ensure the meaning of the HSCL-25 French version.
