COMMENT EVALUER L'ETAT DE SANTE D'UNE PERSONNE?

Une double approche peut être utilisée :
1. Une approche subjective : elle est dictée par la personne elle-même qui apprécie son état de fonctionnement sur une échelle allant du désir de suicide (point minimum) au sentiment de plénitude (point maximum). Il s’agit là d’une évaluation de la satisfaction.
2. Une approche objective : celle-ci consistant en une vision externe, social ou médicale et qui apprécie le degré d’autonomie d’une personne sur une échelle allant du coma(point minimum) à la personne intellectuelle ou autre, c’est l’évaluation de l’autonomie .

How to assess a person’s health?

A dual approach can be used:

1) A subjective approach: It is dictated by the person herself/himself who can assess her/his functioning condition on a scale of desire for suicide (minimum point) to the feeling of self-fullness (maximum point). This is an assessment of satisfaction.

2) An objective approach: this one consists of an external social or medical vision to assess the level of autonomy of a person on a scale of coma (minimum point) to the intellectual person or other. This is the assessment of autonomy.
