Abstract

Although health professions training, by definition, is a subset of adult education, the two fields are disparate in terms of their theoretical foundations and their practice. In this paper, adult education is used as a framework for the analysis of teaching in the health professions. Implications are discussed in terms of theory-building in both areas, research, and practice. Par définition, la formation des professionnels de la santé relève de l'éducation des adultes. Pourtant, ces deux domaines sont différents des points de vue des fondements théoriques et de la pratique. Cet article considère l'éducation des adultes comme cadre de référence en vue d'analyser l'enseignement offert aux professionnels de la santé L'objectif en est de souligner les implications du modèle andragogique des points de vue de la recherche, de l'élaboration des théories et de la pratique dans le domaine de la formation des professionnels de la santé.
