Professional orientation can be used as an important rehabilitation resource in patients with certain diagnoses, mainly with chronic illnesses, given the strong impacts of those conditions on the individual’s life.

Two clinical cases are presented, showing different perspectives in which the process of professional orientation can contribute to improve life quality for this group of individuals.
