État des lieux des compétences des futurs médecins généralistes dans la prise en charge et l’accompagnement de l’allaitement maternel

Abstract : Introduction : Despite its recognized worldwide interest, breastfeeding remains insufficiently pursued in France, due mainly to a lack of support from the medical care workers who themselves are poorly trained in this area. Objective : The aim of our study was to identify the acquired skills of the residents in GP during their internship concerning breastfeeding and its management. Materials and Methods : We have carried out a multicentre observational study in the Aquitaine region. A standardized and anonymous questionnaire was distributed to third year’s residents, during a lecture. The students had to answer to 13 clinical cases, as well as questions about their training. Results : 150 students (79% of the third year’s residents) answered the questionnaire. Correct answers to the entire questionnaire amount to 40.36%, with a percentage significantly higher among younger students and those who have followed an internship in PMI. 92% of the students acknowledged lacking skills in the medical care of breastfeeding while 60% of them confessed having difficulties when consulted by women breastfeeding or wishing to be breastfed. Conclusion : This study shows that, at the end of general medicine internship, the skills of students in the care of breastfeeding appear inadequate. Additional training could help them to better support patients who decide to breastfeed, in their future practice.
