Évaluation de la perception et des connaissances des médecins généralistes de la Gironde sur les facteurs de risque environnementaux cancérogènes

Abstract : The increase in cancer incidence and its possible link with environmental factors rise questions. The general practitioner, as a primary care physician, is most likely to be confronted with this issue. The main objective of this study is to assess the knowledge of general practitioners in the Gironde region on the carcinogenic environmental risk factors and their interest in this issue. This survey was conducted with all general practitioners in the Gironde region, thanks to a questionnaire sent to them by email. The questionnaire was based on the issues of 2012 Inpes barometer "General practicioners and health environment". Between the 17th and 25th of March 2014, 222 out of 1877 physicians surveyed have answered, 214 of which were included in the study. It was found that almost all GPs were aware of this health issue, claiming to have a preventive role to play in this area. Frequently asked by their patients about the carcinogenic environmental factors, they were mostly struggling to provide answers, due to a lack of specific knowledge. This is explained by them as a lack of information on the subject. Very few of them had received specific training in their curriculum. Finally, the specific role of endocrine disruptors in the increased incidence of hormone-dependent cancers was underestimated by physicians, pointing a priority in the trainings that should be given to them.
