SUMMARY

The "SAMSAH TC-CL 13" medico-social unit, specialised in assisting and accompanying adults with acquired brain lesions (TBI, stroke, tumors, etc.) was created in 2005 at the initiative of AFTC 13, an association created by and for the families of patients with traumatic brain injuries.

An internal study conducted in 2006 showed that the healthcare requirements of these patients were far from being met because of the existence of obstacles to long-term medical follow-up, such as patients’ cognitive impairments, the burden on their families and lack of medical knowledge about the sequels of brain damage.

An agreement has been signed whereby these patients and their PRM specialist are able to attend the Physical and Rehabilitation (PRM) unit at the La Timone University teaching hospital’s ambulatory PRM facility in Marseille. This enables them to benefit from this facility’s special PRM programme under the best possible conditions.

The members of the medico-social team at SAMSAH, who are well informed about each patient’s personal history, assess the impairments limiting the activities and restricting the participation of patients with brain lesions in their everyday environment, and the PRM specialist makes interdiscilinary assessments after consulting colleagues in other departments. The two ambulatory PRM programmes in question therefore provide complementary services in terms of diagnosing patients’ functional performances and their ability to follow the medical advice received, as well as improving their quality of life.
