Fin de vie en hospitalisation à domicile‎ : acteurs : médecin généraliste, médecin coordonnateur, équipe HAD

Abstract : The demand from 80% of French to die at home is still not covered. Home medical care, led by the general practitioner, provides an appropriate response to this request. The objective of this study was to find, among general practitioners, ways to improve the teamwork, in end-of-life at home. We interviewed 20 general practitioners of patient, in palliative cares, died at home, over a period of six months. We used a questionnaire and collected all their remarks. The way of communication most used by general practitioners, was the phone. Only 50% of them had already made common visit with the coordinator practitioner, but 55% was favorable to this practice. The coordinator doctor's role was not well known. 65% of general practitioners thought know well home medical care but 55% thought that learning about his functioning would be useful. Finally, 85% felt that home medical care had a role in continuing medical education. There are no ideal means to communicate: general practitioners are asking more dialogue. Continuing education seems to be a good way to communicate and get to know each other. Practitioners unfamiliar with the role of home medical care and his actors, thus they are struggling to position themselves within the team.
