État des lieux des pratiques professionnelles des orthophonistes en unité neuro-vasculaire en France

Abstract : The aim of our study is to outline the variation in the professional practices of speech therapists in stroke units in France. To this end, we conducted a self-administered survey sent to every speech therapist working in a stroke unit in France. The main results highlight that recommendations are globally applied, but are limited by various factors that cause heterogeneity in speech therapy practices, especially regional disparities regarding the full time equivalent of speech therapists in stroke units in France. This leads to a prioritization of interventions, a lack of time allocated to rehabilitation, to information regarding the patient and his/her family, to the training of other health professionals or to research. Concerning the evaluation of deglutition and language and communication disorders, firstline screening is carried out in most cases using home-made tools. The major use of these tools may be justified by the lack of adaptation of standardized tests regarding the specificities of the acute phase. Finally, we notice that speech therapists’ perception of their interventions, influenced by their experience, is also a factor of variation. Therefore, our survey highlights some factors that could be acted upon to improve the working conditions of speech therapists in stroke units, and thereby the quality of their interventions with patients.
