[Research Presentation] Background: Patients with chronic illnesses, including rheumatic diseases have a major need for knowledge and information regarding their condition. This is usually met by different forms of patient education. There is a lack of instruments to evaluate patient education in rheumatic diseases. The educational needs assessment tool, ENAT, has been developed as a quick and simple method of collecting data regarding the patients' views. The English version is now translated into Swedish and called SwENAT. Objective: To translate the instrument ENAT to Swedish and to describe the validation process through field-testing.áMethod: The translation process set down by Beaton et al involves five stages: 1) Initial translation done by two independent translators; 2) Synthesis of these translations; 3) Back translation, done by two new independent translators; 4) Expert committee assessment; and 5) Field-testing.áThe field-testing involves 30 patients with rheumatoid arthritis. The patients were then interviewed to probe what they thought was meant by each item they responded to. The instrument is a self-completed questionnaire comprising 7 domains: managing pain, movement, feelings, arthritis process, treatment, self-help measures and support system. Results: The expert committee received, trough discussion, a final version of SwENAT with semantic, idiomatic, experiential and conceptual equivalence to the original version. The study showed that the questions were well formulated. The questionnaire was easy to fill in and the questions were regarded as emanating from the patients' experience of their illness. The preliminary results show that there is a need of education and information of how to handle the consequences of the disease, even by patients that have had their illness for many years.
