Éducation thérapeutique du patient amputé : rôle de l'ergothérapeute dans la collaboration interprofessionnelle

Abstract : Introduction: Early fitting and education of amputee patients are recommended. Recently, health professionals have been using therapeutic education strategies that promote the autonomy of the amputee patient in the management of his or her daily life. The purpose of this study was to understand how occupational therapists contribute to improving quality of life by collaborating with other professionals in Therapeutic Patient Education programs (TPE). Method: A qualitative approach was used: 4 health professionals from the same unit, trained in TPE, were interviewed. The verbatims were analyzed with the NVivo® software. They were also analyzed in view of the model of human occupation and the concepts of quality of life and interprofessional collaboration. Results: This study showed that the impact of TPE programs on the quality of life depends on several factors, including interprofessional collaboration, coordination and personalization. Occupational therapists work on specific topics that are subject to change. Conclusion: The methods used in therapeutic education tend to influence the positive evolution of the quality of life of amputees. Occupational therapists are involved in a variety of themes and are part of an interprofessional collaborative approach.
