Formation des équipes médicales et paramédicales de trails et marathons

Abstract : Introduction : More and more trails and marathons are being organized for which regulations require a health and rescue system. Doctors and nurses can be asked to supervise these tests. There is no recommendation concerning the training needs for these professionals who work in a hazardous environment for the management of sometimes specific pathologies. The objective is to determine the training needs of medical and paramedical teams medicalizing a trail or marathon in France.
Method : The Delphi consensus method was used to establish a list of items to be covered in training. The experts were doctors and nurses who had medicalized at least one test. They assessed the relevance of the proposed items through three questionnaires.
Results : 92 experts participated in this work, with a rate of 25% of people lost to follow-up after the third questionnaire. A list of 112 positive and 13 negative consensuses was established to determine the training needs of the teams involved.
Discussion : This study allows doctors and nurses interested in medicalizing trails and marathons to know what knowledge they need to acquire and trainers to improve or establish training programs. This work made it possible to highlight the lack of framework of this universe not codified by the university hospital authorities. It would be interesting to develop recommendations for good practices and commonly accepted management protocols to potentiate and standardize management.
