Traduction française et adaptation culturelle du CSNAT (Carer Support Need Assessment Tool)

Abstract : Introduction: nowadays there are more and more patients with palliative diseases living at home, increasing the number of caregivers. These carers are facing many difficulties. The Carer Support Need Assessment Tool (CSNAT) enables a self-assessment for people caring a relative with a palliative illness. The purpose of this study was to translate the CSNAT into French and adapt it culturally. Method: the study was conducted in four palliative care services in Normandy. A first French version of the CSNAT was developed, using a standardized forward and backward translation method. Then, several cognitive interviews were performed. Caregivers had to evaluate the clarity, relevance, and sensitivity of the order, the notation, and fourteen items. The collected data were summarised and discussed by a multidisciplinary team, which resulted in the final French version of the CSNAT. Results: from March to August 2019, ten caregivers were met. The CSNAT items were all considered relevant, and none of them were upsetting or offensive. Ten items were easy to understand, and four had to be modified. The order was easy to understand. The rating system had to be modified. Conclusion: the French version of the CSNAT can help caregivers to express their support needs. Next, it will be necessary to assess its psychometrics properties.
