In addition to clinical and voice-related studies for patients with voice problems, it is important to include and document the patient’s own communication experience.
S-SECEL is a questionnaire for measuring communication ability for patients with voice, speech and communication problems and can be used for patients who have undergone treatment for laryngeal cancer as well as for patients with benign voice problems.
The Swedish version shows good validity and test-retest reliability and is sensitive to measuring changes over time.
Minimum clinically important difference (MCID) and cut-off scores for the S-SECEL have been identified and may be used in clinical practice to help identify patients with laryngeal cancer in need of voice rehabilitation.
