Translation of the Working Alliance Inventory-Short Revised in Slovenian according to a forward-backward translation and a Delphi consensus procedure

Abstract : Introduction: Therapeutic alliance (TA) is a fundamental concept based on communication skills. It is defined a quality as the relationship between physician and patient with the objective to enhance observance. It is of importance for the follow up of chronic diseases. The lack of European data on the subject promoved this study. A systematic literature review and a RAND/UCLA Appropriateness Method identified the Working Alliance Inventory Short Revised (WAI-SR) as the most appropriate scale to evaluate the TA (according to its reproducibility and reliability). The purpose of this study was to achieve the translation of the WAI-SR in Slovenian, according to a forwardbackward translation and a Delphi consensus procedure. Method: A research group composed of therapists and bilingual experts produced a forward translation. Slovenian general practitioners (GPs) validated it using a Delphi procedure. After obtaining a consensus, two independent translators worked together to carry out a backward translation. They had especially to take care of linguistic differences. Result: Twenty-six GPs participated. The Slovenian version of the WAI was validated after two Delphi rounds. The backward translation was achieved by two professional linguists. The differences noted, linked to linguistic variations did not bring any change of semantics regarding the original version. Conclusion: Translation of the WAI-SR into Slovenian using a reliable and reproducible method, will have a triple interest. It will permit homogenization of medical European practices. Its use will establish a working support for the physician to increase its practice and its competences. And finally, communication training for medical students could be improved.
