Abstract


Objectif : La fatigue et les troubles cognitifs qui se manifestent après un cancer sont des effets indésirables qui, souvent, perdurent après les traitements et nuisent à la qualité de vie. L’étude vise à évaluer la faisabilité du neurofeedback et ses effets sur le fonctionnement cognitif et la fatigue des survivants du cancer, particulièrement la faisabilité des stratégies de recrutement, du protocole de recherche et des mesures de résultats.

Devis : L’étude pilote de faisabilité est construite selon un devis avec groupe témoin mis sur liste d’attente pendant une période de 10 semaines. Les participantes servaient elles-mêmes de groupe témoin. Elles ont suivi deux séances de neurofeedback par semaine, pendant 10 semaines.

Participants : L’échantillon était composé de survivantes du cancer du sein vivant à Kingston, en Ontario (n=16).

Méthodologie : Les résultats ont été évalués à l’aide d’échelles d’autoévaluation validées, ainsi que par des tests neurobiologiques avant, pendant et après le traitement par neurofeedback.

Résultats : La faisabilité du protocole de neurofeedback a été confirmée : la procédure s’accompagne d’une diminution significative des troubles cognitifs, de la fatigue, des troubles du sommeil et des symptômes psychologiques.

Implications pour les services psychosociaux : Le neurofeedback pourrait se poser en thérapie complémentaire efficace et non invasive pour traiter les troubles cognitifs qui surviennent chez les survivantes du cancer du sein après les traitements.
