La professionnalisation des sages-femmes : étude de la dynamique d'un système représentationnel

Abstract : This work is in the field of Science Education. He is interested in the process of professionalisation of midwifery students through the study of a system of representations of three professional objects are the profession of midwife, the medical profession and accompaniment.We conducted a longitudinal study of 3 years with midwifery students from France with an online questionnaire. In the end, the answers of 429 subjects have been matched. This three-year study has covered different time in training entry to the first two professional years.We observed the stability of central nuclei of representations of the profession of midwifery and the medical profession. We note, however, significant variations in the lexical content of the representations of the three objects. The study of this representation system helps make highlight the links that form and dissolve between each of these three items. The evolution of this system is interpreted as a consequence of the professionalization process.The study of a system of representation allowed us to put forward a praxeological dimension to our teaching midwifery profession (organization of practical analysis sessions, panel discussions, role plays, group speech…). From a theoretical point of view, this study allows for the assumption that the dynamic evolution of representations present a stable core but variations in or meaning(s) rating(s) to objects.
