L’hypnose au sein du bloc opératoire « Pourquoi pas ? »

Abstract : During my different internships, I experienced a great number of situations where the patients were anxious and were in pain… These pains can be relieved with the help of treatments but they not always administered at the right moment to relieve the patient. In view of the above, I decided to seek for a tool, nurses can use for patient care in optimal conditions during difficult situations. My research is turned towards hypnosis and more particularly interactive hypnosis because it’s a technique that everybody can use. This technique has been discovered and has been known for quite a few years in the medical field. My professional objective is to integrate it into the operating theatre, I discovered during my researches in the field of hypnosis, that this can be helpful in this area of care. Unfortunately, after having demonstrated its efficiency, the use of hypnosis remains underdeveloped in the medical area. This is why my question of research is the following one: « Why interactive hypnosis is not practised on a larger scale during the nursing care of a patient in the operating theatre ? ». Here is my hypothesis derived from my different researches, and funded on the fact that nurses have not the right knowledge about hypnosis, and this hinders further developments. My research is based on a qualitative scale. I use both an explanatory method with the help of a survey among nurses at the operating theatre and an assessment of their knowledge in hypnosis. I have also used an exploratory method with semistructured interviews with nurses trained on a hypnosis method. The analysis of the answers given by healthcare professionals allowed reporting that nurses had general knowledge of hypnosis but still have some idea of this technique. This study allowed me to assert that other brakes could also prevent the development of hypnosis at the operating theatre, such as a lack on hypnosis, the fact that isn’t a service project and it’s not a quote act.
