Comment sécuriser en cabinet de montagne la prise en charge des blessés de sport d'hiver ?‎ Proposition d'une check-list

Abstract : Patients' safety is paramount and to contribute to this the use of check-lists is currently developing in the medical field. The purpose of this work is to propose a list of criteria which need to be checked in mountain practices during the medical care of injured patients. The objective is not to dictate a procedure to professionals but to offer an aid to practice enabling to spot an oversight and correct it before it becomes an issue. We first realized a practice survey which enabled us to establish a pre-list of criteria. A validation of each of them has then been necessary before their final integration to the list: validation came either from transposition of recommendations acknowledged in medical fields close to mountain medicine or from expert opinion. Thanks to this process we obtain a list of twenty-three essential points for the medical care of injured patients without considering a specific painful area. lt is up to every physician to adapt this general check-list and create a specific one tailored to a given trauma according to state-of-the-art scientific knowledge. To avoid making the checking task time-consuming we propose to integrate most of the criteria into the medical software. This check-list enables to improve practices by preventing the most frequent oversights from happening. The check-list aims at improving patients' safety thanks to proof-based quality care. The main limit to its use is the need for regular updates. This work is a first step on this topic. lt shows the interest of using check-lists in the specific field of mountain medicine. A secondary validation is necessary.
