PRIFAM is an e-learning course (on the web) on interdisciplinary family intervention, the purpose of which is skill acquisition for professionals. The objective is to enable them to better support the resilience of people and families in complex health situations. Seventeen acute care and rehabilitation healthcare professionals (nurse, physiotherapist, social worker, and neuropsychologist) involved with people who have sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and their families have been trained using PRIFAM. The teaching strategies used aim for the learners to acquire experiential knowledge in a reflexive approach. A study was conducted to evaluate the e-learning course in terms of participant satisfaction, Website, teaching strategies and the impact of the training on clinical practice. Training is evaluated through a questionnaire and individual pre- and post-training interviews. The results show that the learners develop intentionality in their clinical practice, that learning transforms how they relate to clients, their families, their colleagues and those around them. The e-learning course in family intervention has proven to be an excellent teaching tool which produces development of reflexive thinking among participants, applicable professionally and personally, as well as with respect to interdisciplinary work.
