Adaptació transcultural i validació de la versió catalana i castellana de l'escala Breakthrough Pain Assessment Tool en persones amb càncer

Breakthrough cancer pain due to its characteristics, fast onset, short duration and high severity implies a significant reduction in the quality of 2/2 life perceived by affected persons. For this reason, breakthrough pain deserves recognition, diagnosis, evaluation with specific scales, suitable early treatment and continuous follow-up. A descriptive and cross-sectional study was carried out, through an individual interview of 150 people with cancer and breakthrough pain, hospitalized at the Catalan Institute of Oncology of Girona (Catalonia, Spain) for the cross-cultural adaptation and validation of the Catalan and Spanish version of the Breakthrough Pain Assessment Tool scale. Breakthrough pain was studied with the adapted scale, therapeutic adherence with the Morisky-Green questionnaire and quality of life with the QLQ-C30 V. 3.0 scale. The scale studied has proven to be valid and with good psychometric properties to assess breakthrough cancer pain in a group of people with different types of cancer in Spain ​
