Abstract/Notes
Introduction: The purpose of this study was to conduct an online survey of chiropractic students in the 2011/12 academic year at CMCC in order to determine their attitudes toward vaccination, their history of vaccination and their opinions towards their level of preparedness and confidence to discuss vaccination with patients.
 
Method: All students enrolled in the program at CMCC were eligible to participate in this anonymous survey modeled after a similar survey administered in 1999/2000.
 
Results: The response rate was 43%. Over 90% of all students reported they had been vaccinated. Roughly half of students felt they were well prepared to discuss vaccination with their patients and two-thirds felt they were confident to do so. Between 83.9% and 90% of students in various years of the program expressed a positive attitude toward vaccination.
 
Discussion: Separate Welsh t-test for each year of study indicated statistically significant differences between our survey and the survey published in 1999/2000, with students in our study expressing a more positive attitude toward vaccination.
 
Conclusion: Students enrolled in the chiropractic program at CMCC in the 2011/12 expressed a positive attitude toward vaccination.

Introduction : L’objet de cette étude était de mener une enquête en ligne auprès des étudiants en chiropratique de l’année scolaire 2011–2012 à CMCC afin de connaître leurs attitudes envers la vaccination, leurs propres antécédents de vaccination, et leurs opinions sur leur niveau de préparation et de confiance pour discuter de la vaccination avec leurs patients.

Méthodologie : Tous les étudiants inscrits au programme à CMCC étaient admissibles à participer de façon anonyme à cette enquête modelée sur une enquête similaire menée en 1999–2000.
 
Résultats : Le taux de participation a été de 43 %. Plus de 90 % des étudiants ont indiqué qu’ils ont été vaccinés. Environ la moitié des étudiants s’estimaient être bien préparés pour discuter de la vaccination avec leurs patients, et les deux tiers pensaient le pouvoir faire en toute confiance. Entre 83,8 % et 90 % des étudiants de différentes années du programme ont exprimé une attitude positive envers la vaccination.
 
Discussion : Un test t de Welch distinct pour chaque année d’étude a indiqué la présence de différences statistiquement significatives entre notre enquête et celle publiée en 1999–2000, révélant une attitude plus positive des étudiants de notre enquête envers la vaccination.
 
Conclusion : Les étudiants en chiropratique à CMCC de l’année 2011–2012 ont représenté une disposition positive envers la vaccination.
