Déterminants à la cessation anticipée d'activité libérale des médecins généralistes de plus de 50 ans en région Rhône-Alpes : une analyse quantitative du phénomène

Abstract : Nowadays general practice passes through a period of crisis, mainly demographical, but as well economical, societal and political. Along with this, some general private practitioner's early retirement, before 65 years old, could endanger the situation of the profession. The aim is to quantify this early retirement of the general physicians above 50 years in Rhone-alps region, in order to identify the main factors to this decision. A quantitative cross-sectional survey was conducted from July to December 2013. A total of 1832 computer questionnaires were sent and 401 usable responses were collected and analysed using SPSS® Version 17 software. The participation rate is there for 22,7%. Among our respondents 46,0% say they have experienced a burnout and 40,1% desires to early retire. The early cessation of general practice is significantly related: to the female gender; having experienced a burnout situation; with taking less than 5 weeks of vacations per year; the degradation of health state and the insatisfaction of the medical practice. The top five reasons highlighted are: the health degradation, the job dissatisfaction or burnout, the disproportionately high amount of administrative tasks, the degradation of family relationships and the insufficient remuneration. Our respondents wish for an administrative lightening, the restructuring of the remuneration mode and also a greater appreciation by the Authorities. If in the coming years the early retirement's wishes of the general practitioners are to be carried, a significant negative impact is to be expected in the access of primary care. A profound change in general practice must be implemented.
