Trouble métacognitif et qualité de vie : l’ergothérapeute auprès de victimes de traumatisme crânien

Abstract : Introduction : Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an acquired brain injury that frequently results in cognitive impairment. Following an accident, most victims show self-awareness changes, manifested by the unawareness of said deficit. This lack of awareness impacts many aspects of the person’s life and greatly reduces their living conditions. This study aimed to point out the methods used by occupational therapists in order to help patients become aware of their deficit and improve their quality of life. Method : In order to bring answers to the research question, the use of a qualitative clinical method was relevant. Based on three theoretical concepts, an interview grid was created to question the practice of three occupational therapists in the form of semistructured interviews. Results : The means implemented by occupational therapists to promote awareness of the deficits were based on the confrontation of those deficits through real life situations and simulated experiences. Over the short term, awareness did not improve the patients’ quality of life. Conclusion : In occupational therapy, the management of metacognition disorders is long and complex.The methods used by occupational therapists tend to improve the awareness of the disorder but don’t directly improve the patient’s quality of life. Subsequentmultidisciplinary support is necessary to keep compensating for the deficit.
