at the heart of our values
We work closely with health and social service stakeholders in the Eastern Townships. This allows us to offer the best services available to our members and always be on the lookout for the latest developments.
Trauma care continuum (TCC)
ACTE is part of the trauma care continuum. This unique model allows each person to quickly access the personalized services they need, depending on the complexity and severity of their condition.
Following a TBI:
The person is first admitted to the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Sherbrooke (CHUS) for immediate care.
The CHUS then refers the person to the Centre de réadaptation Estrie (CRE) to continue receiving rehabilitation services.
Once rehabilitation is complete, the CRE informs individuals of the services offered by ACTE so that they can continue to get the support they need.
de la Trajectoire AVC
Through the Comité d’Animation de la Trajectoires AVC, the partnership between the CHUS, CRE and ACTE promotes referrals of stroke patients to our organization.
