Quels sont, en médecine générale, les motifs de consultations des étudiants ? Secondairement, évaluation de la part psychologique des motifs

Abstract : INTRODUCTION: There were 2.3 million students at the start of the school year 2011. The current data about their health show that 37% suffer from stress and 23% from sleep disorder. Their most frequent questions are about nutrition, stress and sleep. No analyzes emerges from the medical profession. The goal of this epidemiological study realized thanks to the CNGE is to identify students' consultations' motivations and to estimate the psychological proportion from them. METHOD: From 12/01/2011 to 04/30/2012, 54 internal students realized the data collection during their ambulatory internship among 128 general practitioners distributed in France. Once a week, they collected the administrative data and the consultations' motivations expressed by every patient. 20 000 consultations all in all were required. Then, 550 students' consultations were analyzed by using the international classification of primary care. RESULTS: The sample consists of 369 women and 180 men with 22 middle-aged years. There are 1127 analyzed consultations' motivations. The most frequent are of general order or concern the respiratory, digestive and osteo-articular systems: Administrative need (3.8%), cough (5.1%), diarrhea (2.9%), complaints of loins (1.1%). Psychological motivations are on the 5th position with 7.3%. Inside, sleep complaints and sadness sensations dominate. CONCLUSION: Frequent motivations are of general, respiratory, digestive or osteo-articular order. Psychological order complaints found by the previous analyzes are present in general medicine consultations. A student's consultation for a commonplace motive should be the opportunity to approach sleeping disorders, moral state and the students' wonderings, to prevent students' mental health.
