Stress chez les internes en médecine générale : une étude qualitative

Abstract : Background: Many surveys address the issue of ill-being among health care professionals. Residents also suffer from stress in the workplace. Several studies of burn-out have sought the factors of stress which are specific to trainee general practitioners (trainee GPs) but no French study has been carried out with the objective of defining them. Objectives: The main objective of this qualitative study is to determine the factors of stress specific to trainee GPs in Ile-de-France. Methods: It is a qualitative study based on semi-direct interviews of 17 voluntary residents carried out between the end of May and the beginning of July, 2012. Results: The main stress factors are lack of supervision and the relationship with leaders (94%), serious or urgent situations (94%), fear of medical errors and medical responsibility (88%), lack of medical experience (82%), workload (76%), working conditions (71%), adaptation to the new internship (59%) and tiredness (59%). Conclusion: These results do not claim to be exhaustive but they do open lines of thought on the ways of limiting stress for GP trainees, to improve their quality of life and allow, indirectly, the improvement of their management of patients.
