Les aidants et l'émergence d'un nouveau champ de recherche interdisciplinaire

Marie-Aline Bloch 1, 2, 3 
Abstract : The issue of informal or formal caregivers is recently getting higher on the agenda. Main reasons are the demographic change with the aging of the population, the increase of economical constraints on the health system, the desire to better take into account the dependent persons and their caregivers needs, and the necessity to bring adapted solutions. In this article, we propose a general panorama of the main research themes in this area, considering at the same time, informal and formal caregivers, knowing their interdependency in terms of complementarity and cooperation. We present the different methodologies and disciplines involved, and we show how fruitfully they are conjugated, giving rise to a new research field including as well knowledge development as the identification and evaluation of new solutions in link with public authorities, professionals and family associations.
