Background: Difficulties in everyday life activities are core features of persons diagnosed with schizophrenia. Moreover, patients seem to demonstrate particular difficulties during complex and multitasking activities, such as cooking a meal (Semkovska et al., 2004). Multitasking refers to activities where the person has to: carry out and alternate between different tasks that vary in terms of priority, difficulty and duration; define the tasks’ targets; and where the person is faced with unexpected problems during the realization of these tasks (Burgess, 2000). However, at present, patients’ multitasking capacities have not been adequately examined in the literature due to an absence of suitable assessment strategies. We thus recently developed a computerized real-life activity task designed to take into account the complex and multitasking nature of certain everyday life activities where participants are required to prepare a room for a meeting – the Computerized Meeting Preparation Task (CMPT) Methods: Twenty-one individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia and 20 matched healthy controls completed the CMPT. During the CMPT, participants found themselves in a virtual room that they had to prepare for a meeting while respecting a list of instructions (the placement of the guests, the needed objects, the desired drinks, etc.). Patients were also evaluated with an extensive cognitive battery (assessing executive functions, attention, processing speed and memory), measures of symptomatology and real world functioning. To examine the ecological validity of the CMPT, 14 others patients were recruited and were given the computerized version and a real version of the meeting preparation task. Results: Results demonstrated that performance on the CMPT significantly differentiated patients and healthy controls for the total time to complete task, planning efficiency, and the respect of the instructions. Moreover, these variables were significantly correlated with executive functioning (i.e. cognitive flexibility and planning), suggesting the major implication of these cognitive processes in multitasking activities. Performance on the CMPT also significantly predicted up to 50% of real world functioning. Finally, performances on the computerized version and the real version of the meeting preparation task were highly correlated, suggesting good ecological validity. Discussion: In this study, we created a novel task involving the multitasking nature of real world activities. The results demonstrated that this approach provides a good indication of the real world functioning in patients diagnosed with schizophrenia. Moreover, results suggest a particular implication of executive functioning in multitasking activities. These findings suggest the importance of evaluating multitasking capacities in patients diagnosed with schizophrenia in order to predict real world functioning. [less ▲]

Introduction : Des interventions non pharmacologiques peuvent réduire le risque que des aidants professionnels qui accompagnent des personnes âgées (atteintes ou non de démence) développent des attitudes âgistes[1], un sentiment d’incompétence[2], une insatisfaction professionnelle[3,4] et un burnout[2]. Ces interventions sont néanmoins essentiellement destinées aux aidants en milieu institutionnel. Objectif : Évaluer, au niveau de différents paramètres (âgisme, connaissances sur la maladie d’Alzheimer, sentiment de compétence, satisfaction professionnelle, burnout, stratégies de coping), l’efficacité d’une formation destinée à des aidants professionnels à domicile. Méthodologie : 18 aides familiales ont bénéficié d’une formation de trois jours visant à améliorer leurs connaissances sur les démences et à les aider à mettre en place des stratégies de résolution de problèmes face aux difficultés rencontrées dans leur pratique, et ceci, afin de favoriser une vision moins stigmatisante de la maladie d’Alzheimer. Différents auto-questionnaires ont été complétés par les participantes avant et après l’intervention. Résultats : Les analyses statistiques indiquent que la formation permet de diminuer l’âgisme des aidantes, d’améliorer leurs connaissances sur la maladie d’Alzheimer et leur satisfaction vis-à-vis de leurs tâches professionnelles. Les stratégies de coping centrée sur la résolution de problème sont également considérées comme plus aidantes. Conclusion : L’intervention est efficace puisqu’elle atteint ses objectifs initiaux. Ces résultats encouragent non seulement la formation des aidants professionnels à domicile mais aussi l’évaluation de l’efficacité des interventions proposées, à la fois auprès des aidants professionnels, informels et des personnes accompagnées. En effet, sur base de la littérature[5,6], nous faisons l’hypothèse que l’amélioration des connaissances et la diminution de l’âgisme réduisent le risque d’induire des comportements de dépendance chez les personnes accompagnées. Ce constat est important compte tenu du rôle des aides familiales, à savoir aider les personnes âgées (atteintes ou non de démence) qui présentent des difficultés dans la réalisation des activités (instrumentales) de la vie quotidienne afin qu’elles restent le plus longtemps possible à leur domicile.
