Intérêt d'une échelle d'auto-évaluation de la douleur pour la population aphasique

Abstract : Communication tools based on non verbal information are more and more commonly used by speech therapists with people suffering from severe aphasia, meaning patients whose verbal communication is strongly affected. Pain self-assessment is a domain in which this type of tools is still underdeveloped. This results in a global under-assessment of the aphasic patients’ pain. Departing from those two facts, this study aims at investigating the benefit of a pain self-assessment scale for aphasic people. This tool is mainly based on non verbal information. The small-scaled population sample chosen and the methodology used do not allow us to really ensure the validity of this tool. However, results demonstrate that patients suffering from an aphasic condition tended to adapt more efficiently to this pain self-assessment scale rather than the most commonly used classic pain scale.
