Connaissance des femmes sur le suivi gynécologique de prévention : étude menée en région PACA

Abstract : Purpose of the study: Describe the knowledge of women about preventive gynecological care and midwives skills, as well as preventive gynecological care undergone women. Materials and method: This study was conducted with an observational, descriptive, cross-sectional multicenter methodology. Data was collected using a questionnaire distributed to women aged 18 to 75 living in the Provence-Alpes-Côte-D'azur region from February to September 2018. Results: Out of 531 women interviewed, the consultation frequencys and screening patterns did not always follow the HAS’s (Haute Autorité de Santé) recommendations. Women's knowledge regarding the content of preventive gynecological care was generally right, but were poor concerning the screening patterns for gynecological cancers. Midwifes are less recognized by women as being a competent professional to perform gynecological monitoring of prevention, compared to general practitioners and gynecologists. Many women deplore the lack of information about midwives’ skills, this is the main reason why four out of ten women would not consider consulting a midwife for preventive gynecological care. Conclusion: This study highlighted the lack of knowledge of women about preventive gynecological care, and midwives skills and their possibility to carry out routine monitoring. Improving women's information seems to be an effective lever to improve their monitoring and integrate the midwives into the heart of preventive gynecology, in collaboration with gynecologists and general practitioners.
