Professional rehabilitation

The professional rehabilitation department takes patients into care extremely quickly in order to foresee a return to work via new training or reorientation and by participating in various workshops.

To find solutions to these problems, the CRR has introduced professional rehabilitation into its procedures. As soon as the patients' condition allows it, they are given an adapted job, followed by a socioprofessional supervisor, within the workshops of the CRR. This positive confrontation will allow them to return to a normal professional situation or at least help them gain in confidence for the future.

Sometimes it is not possible to return to a previous position, and it is with these professional workshops that patients and orientation psychologists can initiate future re-integration projects within a new profession.


Professional rehabilitation programme

Returning to work is an important objective for people who have suffered an accident. Early care allows the difficulties to be analysed and helps patients to overcome them.

Depending on the pathology and the place of residence, the treatment can be carried out on an inpatient or outpatient basis.

Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE)

This is the most important test for assessing the skills needed to return to work.

After completing a questionnaire and upon referral by one of the Clinic's doctors, the patient is cared for by a specially trained physiotherapist.

With a total of 29 different gestures measured with progressively increasing stress, the test allows a measurement of actual capacity under safe ergonomic conditions.

This capacity is then compared with the job description. It is also used to describe what a suitable workstation would look like for the patient.

Consultation for re-educative advice

On the strength of its experience in professional rehabilitation, our medical team is at the disposal of patients and referring doctors to guide or optimise re-educative care in order to limit de-conditioning and/or foreseeable difficulties when returning to work.

Evaluations and expertises

Cette prestation permet de clarifier les options thérapeutiques et réadaptatives, dans les suites précoces d’un accident.

Une observation interdisciplinaire est coordonnée par le service ambulatoire sur une période de 2 ou 3 jours.

Ce service est proposé non seulement aux Whiplash, mais aux autres troubles récents de l’appareil locomoteur, aux TCC et aux blessés médullaires.

Professional Reorientation

Sometimes it is no longer possible to return to a former occupation. In this case, a professional reorientation must be considered.

  • When the AI rights are available, a programme called ECP (évaluation des capacités Professionnelles) allows to test a suitable position and to validate orientation choices through " in-company discovery " placements.
  • When AI entitlements have expired, Suva patients can still receive help with reorientation through the Professional Orientation (PO) .

Professional re-training

Mandated by the AI, 2 outpatient programmes (entraînement endurance et entraînement progressif) enable patients with a neurological condition in particular to progressively confront the constraints of the world of work in a protected environment over a certain period of time. This step is sometimes necessary before a return to the job market.

Our specialists

The Socio-Professional Trainers (SPT) 

They have a basic technical training supplemented by social training (HES). This dual identity gives them a key role in the process of professional reintegration. They develop the ability to work, collaborate transversally with all the teams at the Clinique romande de réadaptation (doctors, therapists, neuropsychologists, social services), and coordinate rehabilitation measures with the Suva and AI counsellors. They evaluate, with standardized and regulated activities, the professional and integration capacities in a vocational rehabilitation project.

Psychologists in Educational and Vocational Counseling (EVC)

In coordination with the MSPs and in view of the limitations stated by the therapists, they draw up a realistic and achievable professional profile integrating the patient's motivations, skills and aptitudes. They carry out psychometric tests in order to assess learning capacities. They help and train patients in the right job search methods.

The Doctor

He is the coordinator for external correspondents (AI, the Suva, insurances...) and internal correspondents at the Clinic (doctors, neuropsychologists, physiotherapists, ergo-therapists...). He validates the limitations observed within the situation.
