ABENTE, Silvia; ARBO, Carlos  e  CABRERA, Marta. Validation of a questionnaire in guarani to detect epilepsy. Rev. virtual Soc. Parag. Med. Int. [online]. 2020, vol.7, n.2, pp.41-47. ISSN 2312-3893.

In Paraguay, as a bilingual country and its characteristic historical context, to reach the speaking Guaraní population has always been considered a challenge, especially in the most vulnerable sectors, through the use of tools that reduce the gap of the language barrier in health care services in general. By translating the epilepsy diagnosis questionnaire aimed at its use in primary care, it was expected to bring closer to the medical professional a useful element in clinical practice that also provided data of diagnostic value and treatment guidelines. In this work, the validation of the questionnaire, originally conceived in Spanish, was carried out, distinguishing some idiomatic aspects that contribute richness to the clinical history in epilepsy and define the therapeutic aspect, providing the medical professional with a material of practical use and easy to apply in daily clinical practice.
