Master Thesis

Formation continue et pratique de la réanimation néonatale des sages-femmes du réseau de santé périnatal parisien

Abstract : Study’s objectives : Identify the training courses offered in neonatal resuscitation and determine possible areas for improvement according to the needs demonstrated by the practice of midwives as well as their expectations.
Materials and Method : The study carried out is a prospective, descriptive and multicenter study. Data collection was carried out via an online questionnaire distributed to midwives from October 2020 to January 2021.
Results : Most of the 212 midwives interviewed indicated that they performed neonatal resuscitation relatively rarely. However, those of level 3 still face it more often than those of level 1 and 2. It is also noted that the frequency of resuscitation procedures decreases with the advance in the neonatal resuscitation algorithm. Higher the frequency of resuscitation was, more comfortable the professional was. However, the intubation procedure remains a critical and stressful stage for all midwives. At the end of their initial training, midwives who received high-fidelity simulation sessions felt more prepared to take on neonatal resuscitation than others. Most of the midwives (80%) had received at least one training in neonatal resuscitation in their continuing professional development. However, half of our study population had an insufficient resuscitation training due to its absence or irregularity. All of the midwives think it necessary to set up more regular continuing training courses. The majority opted for training by high-fidelity simulation.
Conclusion : The study showed that practice was essential to the development of a competence. Without neglecting theoretical knowledge, it is necessary to continue to improve access to continuing training for midwives, who today lack regularity. It is an essential element for optimal management of neonatal resuscitation.
