Stratégies de prescription des médecins généralistes dans le cadre des infections respiratoires non compliquées : étude qualitative auprès de 14 médecins généralistes landais et bretons

Abstract : Background : The treatment of mild respiratory tract infections is a common occurrence in general medicine. The range of medication has been considerably reduced over the last few years. The main objective of this study is to identify the strategies which practitioners have developed in order to adapt to the difficulties engendered by new rules governing prescription. The secondary objectives are to identify brakes and factors favoring a putting in conformity of the practices. Methods : We carried out a qualitative study in the form of semi-structured interviews among GPs in the Landes and in Brittany who have at least 10 years’ experience. Results : 14 GPs were interviewed. They note a fall in the number of prescriptions for antibiotics, vasoconstrictors and mucolytics. For other sorts of treatment, this reduction is more differentiated. To change their prescription, the GPs set up adaptation strategies (information given to t! he patient, deferred prescription…). Even though all the GPs express concern over the numerous changes, they also note factors which would enable practices to be brought into line. Discussion : This study reveals three different profiles : the non-prescribers, the placebo advocates and the prescrbers convinced. It may be said that by acting on contibutory factors, it would be possible to reduce the number of drug prescriptions.
