DELFINO, Lais Lopes et al. Brazilian transcultural adaptation of an instrument on communicative strategies of caregivers of elderly with dementia. Dement. neuropsychol. [online]. 2017, vol.11, n.3, pp.242-248. ISSN 1980-5764.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1980-57642016dn11-030005.

Communication with patients with dementia may be a difficult task for caregivers.

OBJECTIVE:

The aim of this study was to produce a Brazilian transcultural adaptation of an instrument developed in Canada, called the Small Communication Strategies Scale, composed of 10 items constructed from 10 communicative strategies most recurrent in a literature survey.

METHODS:

Drawing on understanding of the construction of the Small Communication Strategies Scale (SCSS), a Brazilian Portuguese version of the instrument was devised through the following steps: translation, back-translation and semantic-cultural adaptation by a specialized linguist in English-Portuguese translations and application of the comprehension test for the version produced in a group of caregivers of elderly individuals with dementia.

RESULTS:

The transcultural equivalence process was performed and two items of the SCSS needed adapting to the Brazilian context. After changes suggested by a specialized linguist, the final version was applied to 34 caregivers and the transcultural equivalence considered satisfactory.

CONCLUSION:

The Brazilian version of the instrument was successfully transculturally adapted for future validation and application in Brazil.
