L’intégration de l’aidant dans des ateliers de communication pour patients laryngectomisés totaux : impacts sur la communication, la qualité de vie et l’image de soi

Abstract : Total laryngectomy is a surgery that has many psychosocial and communicational consequences. Since laryngectomized subjects can no longer use their laryngeal voice, communication is impaired. Numerous scientific studies describe the impacts of total laryngectomy on the subject's communication, quality of life and self-image. A person in the social circle of the laryngectomized subject implicitly becomes caregiver playing a primordial role, by being his privileged communication partner. However, there is few literatures on the joint formation of the laryngectomized subject and the caregiver. This study aims to analyze the impact of a communication workshop offered to patients and their caregivers. We included eight subjects, each with a caregiver; half of the subjects attended the workshop alone while the rest attended the workshop with their caregiver. We built a survey to allow us to assess, two months after the workshop, the evolution of subjects in several areas (communication, quality of life, self-image). The data collected establish that the presence of the caregiver at a communication workshop improves the communication skills of the laryngectomized subject. But the results do not show any impact of the presence of the caregiver on the subjects' quality of life, which otherwise improved little after the workshop. Nevertheless, it is important to consider the current health period (Covid19) which has strongly impacted the quality of life of all populations.
