L'influence de la culture dans l'expression verbale de la douleur : étude comparative entre des patients cancéreux français et syriens

Abstract : This study examines the role of culture in the perception and the verbal expression of pain among Syrian and French cancer patients. The level of intensity (AVS scale) and the different aspects (Saint-Antoine Pain Questionnaire) of their pain were studied. The sensory and emotional descriptors chosen by Syrian patients have a stronger semantic content in comparison to those used by the French. The patient’s cultural background affects the perception and verbal expression of pain, and as such should be considered in treatment.
