Carer Communication Outcomes after Stroke Scale – Italian version (Carer COAST-IT)

This patient outcome measure is the Italian version of the Carer COAST scale. It is designed to measure patient communication effectiveness from the point of view of their carers and includes 5 items to explore impact on the carer’s own quality of life. The Carer COAST-IT was jointly developed by the Center for Neurocognition, Epistemology and theoretical Syntax (NEtS), School of Advanced Studies IUSS, Pavia (Valentina Bambini, Stefano Cappa, Andrea Moro), the Neurorehabilitation Unit, IRCCS S. Maugeri Foundation, Pavia (Beatrice Aiachini, Barbara Cattani, Maria Leonilde Dichiarante, Caterina Pistarini), and the IRCSS Fondazione Ospedale San Camillo, Venice (Giorgio Arcara). This work was partially supported by Regione Toscana under the framework of the project “Assessing Pragmatic Abilities and Cognitive Substrates” (Bando Salute 2009; Grant number: 19), awarded to the first author while affiliated to Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa. 

Permission to translate the Carer COAST scale was obtained from The University of Manchester and The University of Leeds.
