Mise en place de la collaboration avec familles de patients en état végétatif chronique et en état pauci-relationnel afin d’optimiser la prise en soins en ergothérapie

Abstract : Background: The onset of a permanent vegetative state or a minimally conscious state causes a big change in families’ lives. They are often in a situation of great suffering but professionals need their collaboration. Indeed, patients are frequently non-communicative, and families have to express themselves for them. The aim of this study was to determine how to help the families to be integrated into a partnership with the team, which will optimise the care in occupational therapy. Methods: Six occupational therapists and three families were interviewed to compare their views. They were asked about their opinions on the involvement of families, their roles in care and the facilitators and barriers. Results: The participants identified some facilitating elements such as meetings, exchanges around the patient and communication in general. The families didn’t note any barriers but the occupational therapists mentioned the lack of listening and consideration. Conclusion: Families have a very important role with patients in permanent vegetative and minimally conscious states. In occupational therapy, collaboration allows for optimal care. Moreover, there are simple ways to facilitate their involvement and collaboration. It should be interesting to investigate the impact of disability awareness and its process. In occupational therapy, we should wonder about the integration of families through workshops.
