Rôle du médecin généraliste dans la communication sur le thème de la sexualité‎ : freins et attentes de collégiens de classe de 3e de l'agglomération grenobloise

Abstract : Introduction: The general practitioner is not a priority source of information on adolescent sexual health. The objective of this study was to identify the expectations of youth with their general practitioner on the theme of sexuality, in order to facilitate and enhance the doctor-adolescent relationship. Methodology: This was a descriptive study based on a questionnaire distributed to 9th grade students from three public schools in Grenoble in October and November 2010. Results: 250 students, mean age 14 years, were interviewed. 97.7% of them were seeking information about sexuality, of which, only 17.2% cited the general practitioner as the source of information. 18.7% were unaware that their doctor could tell them about sexuality. 94% of students felt that there was at least one obstacle to address sexual health with their general practitioner. However, 97.6% of them had expectations from their physician on this topic. They especially wanted to be informed and heard. In addition, half of the students wanted to consult alone. Conclusion: Consultation with a teen has its specificity. Adolescents have the right to choose their doctor. Confidentiality must be at the heart of the doctor-patient relationship without excluding parents. The physician should offer the teenager to see him alone. In Practice, a repository could be validated to identify and review those in need. A consultation dedicated to the young person could be moved, at age 14. This study can reassure the general practitioner on the teenager's expectations concerning his mission of prevention and information.
