Les futurs médecins généralistes pratiqueront-ils les sutures en cabinet de ville ?

Abstract : Background: Stitches are part of the practice of GPs. However, there is a decrease in the practice of this technical gesture. The objective of this study is to identify obstacles to the practice of stitches by the future GPs. Methods: This is an epidemiological, descriptive and analytical study by numerical Internet questionnaire conducted among interns of general medicine in Ile-de-France registered in TCEM 3 during June 2015. Results: 227 interns responded, 104 (45.8%) had completed an additional education (DESC, DU, ...), 109 (48%) felt the training received in the DES of general medicine insufficient to learn sutures and 192 (84.6% ) were satisfied with the learning received during the internship. 169 (74.5%) wanted to have a GP practice in the future and 183 (80.6%) had the will to practice stitches, while 166 (73.1%) actually thought that they will really do stitches in their future practice. The main obstacles identified were too much time gesture (59.6%; p<0.01), difficulty of compliance with the rules of asepsis (18.7%; p=0.02) and the lack of training (7.2%; p=0.03). Conclusion: Despite the willingness to make stitches in their future practice, general medicine interns face barriers such as lack of training and time consuming aspect of the gesture, which tend to reduce this practice in town. Solutions can be proposed: theoretical lessons, continuing education, and patients information.
