Abstract [en]

Purpose: To investigate patient satisfaction with intrathecal baclofen treatment, complications from the treatment, and the impact of general expectations on treatment outcome in relation to satisfaction.

Methods: A multicentre study with cross-sectional design. Data were collected through questionnaires and patient records. Patients were recruited from six outpatient intrathecal baclofen clinics in Sweden. Eighty-three patients who had been treated with intrathecal baclofen for 1–4 years were included. For patients unable to communicate, data were collected through a proxy. The Patient Global Impression of Change was used to measure patients’ general satisfaction with change from intrathecal baclofen treatment. The Life Orientation Test – revised, was used to measure general expectations/optimism.

Results: General satisfaction with intrathecal baclofen treatment was high; 51/77 patients reported “much improved” or “very much improved.” There was no relationship between the two main outcomes (general satisfaction and general expectations/optimism) (rs = 0.12, p = 0.382). The two groups; those who could and those who could not communicate, did differ regarding personal characteristics and should be evaluated as such.

Conclusions: Most patients/proxies reported a high level of satisfaction with intrathecal baclofen treatment. The reported satisfaction with intrathecal baclofen treatment was not dependent on general expectations.

  • Implications for Rehabilitation
  • Patients with intrathecal baclofen treatment report low levels of health and quality of life at the same time as they are highly satisfied with their treatment.

  • Intrathecal baclofen should be equally offered to both optimistic and less optimistic patients.

  • Patients who are able to/not able to communicate, differs in characteristics and should be informed and followed up in different ways in daily clinical practice.
