Perception sociale de la maladie d'Alzheimer : les multiples facettes de l'oubli

Abstract : Few studies are available in France on social representations of Alzheimer’s disease, even if stakeholders (policy makers, professionals and families) show a negative image of the disease. The National Institute for Prevention and Health Education (INPES) has introduced a series of surveys designed to explore and analyze the perceptions, knowledges and opinions of the population, the family caregivers and the health professionals against the disease. The results of the first three studies reveal that social representations of the disease are quite similar whatever the degree of proximity and knowledge of the disease: they assimilate memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease, old age and Alzheimer’s disease. The relationship between these representations and possible stigmatization of the patient are discussed but need further research.
