L’ accompagnement ergothérapique des patients/détenus dans la reprise de l’autonomie en U.H.S.A.

Abstract : Introduction: The “U.H.S.A.” (specially adapted hospital units) are recent structures where there has been little occupational therapy research. Imprisonment leads to occupational deprivation among prisoners. This study aimed to investigate occupational therapy practice in the recovery of patient autonomy in “U.H.S.A.” Method: Using a clinical and qualitative method, three occupational therapists working in “U.H.S.A.” were interviewed during semi-structured discussions. Verbatim records were analysed regarding the theories of autonomy, of imprisonment and the KAWA model. Results: The interviewed occupational therapists said that the “U.H.S.A.” had a structure and a functioning different to from a standard unit. It was linked with the prison administration. Concerning the role of occupational therapy, it was a place of expression place where patients could express their emotions through different mediations. The recovery of autonomy revolved around mediation choices. Imprisonment had many consequences for the patients which are generally detrimental to them. Conclusion: Despite its specificity in autonomy, occupational therapists work on the recovery of autonomy mainly through the choice of mediations and not with ADL. continuing to interview question the professionals to achieve data saturation would be relevant. Research perspectives may focus on the collaborating of nurses and occupational therapists within the “U.H.S.A”.
