The project is in line with CEPID Neuromat's activities in the development of scientific dissemination activities. The objective of the project will be the use of social networks as a therapeutic approach, within the framework of the EMBRACE initiative. It is proposed, on the one hand, the study of social networks as a means of building a two-way communication between people with brachial plexus injury and the EMBRACO initiative of CEPID Neuromat. On the other hand, in a dialogue with the subject of the relationship between patient and therapist, organic participation will be carried out in groups of people with brachial plexus injury with the purpose of capturing and classifying demands.
