L’émotionnel aux confins de la vie : une approche prospective des compétences en gériatrie hospitalière

Rebecca Dickason 1, *
Abstract : The results of the French “Old Age and Autonomy Consultation” reveal, on the one hand, the current proportion of elderly people in hospital (30 % of patients hospitalized for a short period and 65 % of those in follow-up and rehabilitation care) (Ministry of Health, 2019) and, on the other hand, an increase in the number of dependent elderly people by 2030 of 15 % to 33 % depending on the scenario adopted (Libault, 2019). By 2050, a doubling of the French population aged over 80 is expected, as well as an increase in the proportion of people aged over 65 (OECD, 2019). In this context, looking at tomorrow’s competencies in geriatrics makes sense. Based on a field study in long-term care, this paper highlights two levels of competencies (individual and collective) as well as a dyad of competencies at the emotional level : competencies related to the performance of emotional labor, for nurses and nursing assistants, and competencies related to the detection of emotional hardship and (over)load, for nursing supervisors.
