Vécu et devenir des patients ayant bénéficié de rééducation à l'effort au sein du programme “V’Air Corps Réhab'' de 2016 à 2019

Abstract : Context: Nowadays, physical activity benefits in chronic diseases are well demonstrated, whereas in primary, secondary or even tertiary prevention. To be efficient, it must be regularly done and well integrated in a daily routine. The medical regroupment in the Vercors area developed a yearly physical rehabilitation program called “V’Air Corps Rehab”. It welcomes voluntary patients with a wide variety of chronic diseases. Every week, they go outside all together as a group with medical supervision and sport coaches, to practise some physical activity. Objective: The objective of this study was to evaluate participants’ feelings during the rehabilitation year, and their future after the end of the program, regarding their physical activity habits. Method : A qualitative study led on 16 patients, members of this program, from 2016 to 2019. The interviews were either individuals or in focus groups. Results: The main result showed the importance of the group, and the social integration created by this type of program. Physical and psychological benefits were demonstrated but with a variability among participants. They were globally satisfied with the program, even though their goals weren’t always achieved. Concerning the future of the participants, a majority continued the physical activity, under different ways of practice. However, the study revealed that the “after” program was an issue. Several patients had to repeat a year or stopped physical activity because of a lack of adapted solution to keep practicing. Conclusion: Physical and psychological benefits were described by the patients. The group effect is massive in this kind of program. The patients globally kept practicing physical activity after the end of the program. A relay program could be useful to perpetuate the benefits and routine acquired. Follow-up studies might be interesting to measure statistically the efficiency of this kind of program, furthermore with a long-term hindsight.
