Surpoids et obésité de l’adulte : connaissances, opinions et pratiques des médecins généralistes du département du Tarn et Garonne

Abstract : Objective: To assess the opinions, knowledge and practices of the general practitioners on adult obesity and overweight in the Tarn-et-Garonne department. Method: Declarative cross sectional descriptive survey. A questionnaire was sent to all of the 196 GPs working in Tarn-et-Garonne in May 2013 and 2 telephone reminders were made. Results: Almost all of the GPs (94%) considered obesity as a chronic disease. To them, behavioral factors were the primary determinants of obesity. 88% thought it was their responsibility to treat obese or overweight patients and 52% considered it enhancing. Despite their interest in the dealing of these diseases, obesity and overweight’s prevalence was underestimated and the scanning was not fully optimal. They graded their professional abilities 6 out of 10. Only 23% knew the “national nutrition health program”. Their therapeutic objectives were generally more demanding than those recommended. The main problem encountered was the patients’ low compliance and / or lack of motivation. The doctors knew the main baratric surgery procedures (except Sleeve, known by 42% of them). GPs expected of the obesity network additional training and multidisciplinary care of patients. Conclusion: To ensure greater management in Tarn-et-Garonne, it would be interesting that the obesity network propose training adapted to the general practitioners’ needs and develop a multidisciplinary cooperation.
