Les médecins généralistes ont-ils confiance dans les médicaments génériques ? Enquête auprès des médecins généralistes de l'Arc Alpin en 2015

Abstract : The main objective of this survey was to determine the level of confidence of general practitioners of the french "Arc Alpin" (Haute-Savoie, Savoie and Isère) in generic drugs in 2015. The secondary objective was to investigate the possible determinants of this confidence. A questionnaire was sent to all general practitioners of the french "Arc Alpin" between July and Seprtember 2015. Descriptive statistics were used to assess physician's perceptions and logistic regression models to evaluate predictors of confidence. 338 physicians responded to the questionnaire. 85.2% said they were confident in generic drugs (68.3% "somewhat confident" and 16.9% "completely confident"). Physicians over 45 years had significantly less confidence than those under 45 years (76.5% versus 91.1%). Men were significantly less confident than women (78.5% versus 91.1%). Physicians working in rural areas had significantly less confidence than those working in urban or semi-rural areas (74.4% versus 86.8%). The physician's level of confidence in this survey was higher than the level observed in a national survey in 2013 (67%). Nevertheless, the population of this study was younger than the national average of general practitioners. But the younger physicians were more confident than their elders. These results are consistent with the literature. However, possible links between the level of confidence and gender or location of work are new elements that could be the basis for an interventional study.
