Fardeau des aidants de patients atteints de troubles neurocognitifs : perspectives de prise en soins psychosociale et pharmaceutique

Abstract : Alzheimer’s disease and Related Disorders (ADRD) are associated with a caregiver burden that increases with the progression of the disease. Previous psychosocial interventions reported a moderate improvement on caregiver burden. Patients with ADRD and their caregivers are also exposed to higher risk of developing drug-related problems.Our objective was to design an integrated pharmaceutical care at a multidisciplinary psychosocial intervention that reduces the caregiver burden of aged patient with ADRD.To guarantee the effectiveness of the intervention, preliminary studies were conducted to: (1) identify predicting factors that increase the caregiver burden through a cross-sectional study, a longitudinal study and from a literature review ; (2) to identify the prioritized caregivers’ needs through a Delphi survey, including the pharmaceutical field, after conducting a systematic review of the literature; (3) to identify the effectiveness criteria of psychosocial interventions and the extent of the pharmacist's role with the patient / caregiver dyad from a literature review. Our work leaded to design, in a multidisciplinary and multicentric way, the protocol of the PHARMAID study. The PHARMAID study is a 18-month randomized, controlled, with three parallel groups, and multi-center trial. The primary objective is to measure the impact of personalized pharmaceutical collaborative care integrated to a multidisciplinary psychosocial intervention on the caregiver burden of aged patient with ADRD. To date, 72 dyads have been included, representing 30% of the expected sample. If the effectiveness of this collaborative approach is demonstrated, its durability in the participating centers and its extension in the other memory centers, neurology or geriatric wards could be considered. The costs and the cost-effectiveness of different interventions will also be evaluated through detailed analyses of formal and informal resource consumption during the study
