Translation and cultural check of the WAI SR (Working Alliance Inventory Short Revised) in Hebrew using a Forward/Backward translation with a Delphi consensus procedure

Abstract : An efficient therapeutic alliance(TA)provides a better adherence to treatment, and moreover, a better quality of care.A research team in a French medical university(Brest), decided on selecting a tool, which could be used to assess TA. It was the TATA study (Tool Assessment for Therapeutic Alliance study).The Working Alliance Inventory Short Revised (WAI SR) was chosen and had to be translated in several languages, in order to be correctly used in non-English speaking countries. The aim of this study was to translate it into Hebrew. Methods : the method chosen was a Forward/Backward translation with a Delphi consensus procedure followed by a cultural check . A panel of experts was asked to evaluate the translation following the rules of a Delphi procedure. Then, the Hebrew version was translated back into English. A comparison was made between this version and the original one in order to adapt it within its national context. Results: in order to respect language’s rules, the Hebrew version had a female and a male version of the questionnaire. A panel of thirteen experts participated in one Delphi round that reached to consensus. After cultural check, the Hebrew version was found true to the original. Conclusion: a Hebrew version of the WAI SR is available. It can be used in Israel, in day-to-day medicine, in medical training, and in further research concerning TA. It can also be used in multinational trials, as the WAI SR now exists in several European languages.
