BROOKS, Shavaughn Ashley Nikita. Inside Guillain-Barré Syndrome: An occupational therapist's perspective. S. Afr. j. occup. ther. [online]. 2014, vol.44, n.3, pp.40-43. ISSN 2310-3833.

Occupational Therapists working with patients with Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) are tasked with collaborating with the patient to achieve maximal functional recovery. Although much has been published about recovery after GBS from a scientific perspective; this article combines occupational therapy principles with the personal experiences of an occupational therapist who herself suffered from GBS. This commentary outlines important considerations for providing intervention to patients with GBS and offers insights into the emotional and psychological aspects of coping with GBS.

Palavras-chave : Guillain-Barre Syndrome; personal experience.
