Implication et positionnement des sages- femmes des Bouches du Rhône et du Var quant à la politique vaccinale

Abstract : Introduction: Vaccination is necessary for the eradication of diseases and the reduction of epidemics. Many recommendations for vaccine policy have been published recently and confirm the key role of health professionals, including midwives, in vaccine prevention. The purpose of this thesis is to identify the involvement and positioning of midwives in Bouches du Rhône and Var in terms of vaccination policy. Material and Method: the study conducted is a quantitative, prospective and descriptive approach. It was conducted from June to October 2018. The questionnaire was intended for midwives who were performing pregnancy and / or post partum consultations. 287 questionnaires were distributed and 127 responses were collected. Results: In this study, only a third of midwives believe that vaccination policy is necessary and is a public health priority. The majority of midwives say they lack training and therefore find it difficult to position themselves and to give information to their patients. The main impediments to vaccination that emerge are identical for midwives and their patients, they evoke a doubt about vaccine safety, a lack of information from the health authorities and the vaccination obligation that is poorly lived. Conclusion: Vaccine policy remains controversial and it would require training and adherence of health professionals more important so that patients can also be confident.
