Posture professionnelle et relation thérapeutique au cœur de la prise en charge en ergothérapie

Abstract : Context: The relationship with others is inevitable and vital for the healthy development of each person. In our lifetime, we are confronted with different forms of relationships. In the context of care, we use the terms therapeutic relationship. In occupational therapy care, specific factors impact the position of the professional.That is why, in order to offer the best possible support, occupational therapists must be aware of the elements that affect this position and the therapeutic relationship.The purpose of this research was to identify these elements. Method: The methodology used was based on a qualitative research involving twelve semistructured interviews with occupational therapists who were working in different types of facilities.They completed the same interview grid while also providing their professional experiences and backgrounds. Results: The results showed that there wasn’t a typical position because each relationship was unique as it was adapted to the individual. It also appeared that many external elements interfered in this healthcare provider-patient relationship. In spite of this, professionals applied and respected some basic rules in order to have a professional position allowing themto carry out their therapeutic care in the best possible way. Conclusion: Many elements influence the occupational therapist's position, and being aware of them helps to improve the therapeutic relationship and the quality of patient care while respecting the patient's private sphere.
