  1. Posttraumatic stress disorder after treatment for breast cancer : Prevalence of diagnosis and use of the PTSD Checklist-Civilian Version (PCL-C) as a screening instrument.

    Article - En anglais

    The presence of a posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) diagnosis in women (n=82) diagnosed with Stage 0-IIIA breast cancer was assessed 6 to 72 months after cancer therapy.

    The PTSD Checklist-Civilian Version (PCL-C) and the PTSD module for the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV Nonpatient Version, PTSD module (SCID-NP-PTSD) were administered in a telephone interview.

    SCID-NP-PTSD results indicated prevalence rates of 6% and 4% for current and lifetime PTSD, respectively.

    Use of the recommended cutoff score of 50 on the PCL-C to determine diagnosis of current cancer-related PTSD resulted in a sensitivity of. 60 and a specificity of. 99 with 2 false-negative diagnoses.

    In conclusion, PTSD can be precipitated by diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, and the PCL-C can be a cost-effective screening tool for this disorder.
