Perception de l’industrie pharmaceutique par les internes en médecine générale après FACRIPP (Formation à l’Analyse CRItique de la Promotion Pharmaceutique) et perception de la formation

Abstract : Context: the pharmaceutical industry influences healthcare professionals by promoting pharmaceutical incentives through various methods to prescribe their molecules. This influence is made by providing information through medical visits, organized training, advertising, writing articles. A pilot training was set up at the Faculty of Bordeaux to teach postgraduate students the critical analysis of pharmaceutical promotion. The objective of this study is to evaluate changes in perceptions of the pharmaceutical industry and its influence after training and the perception of training. The Critical Analysis of Pharmaceutical Promotion (FACRIPP) training took place over two days in January 2016 and March 2016. Material and method: Qualitative study by semi-directed interviews with 14 students who participated in the FACRIPP between October 2016 and March 2017. The interviews were carried out with the help of a maintenance guide. The data was analyzed by open coding in a manual manner using the NVIVO software. Results: the pharmaceutical industry is perceived by the interns as a commercial enterprise, their presence imposed on them. They have a negative image related to pharmaceutical scandals. The pharmaceutical industry has a role to play in its drug production and research function. Post-training interns recognize the influence of the pharmaceutical industry on their practice but also on that of their colleagues. They want to put in place new ways of functioning to limit the influence of the pharmaceutical industry in their practice. They talk about continuing training on the subject, obtaining information from independent sources, prescribing in DCI, being in contact with doctors limiting their relations with the pharmaceutical industry. Such training is of interest to them in the third cycle of general medicine and should be offered to all interns. The interactive nature of the training and its content were appreciated. The training allowed students to develop a critical mind, a sense of support from their peers, a reflection on their prescriptions, arguments to refuse to participate in promotional events. They put forward some limitations such as too short a time, articles that were difficult to understand, and the over-emphasis of the speakers. Conclusion: There is a willingness of the interns to limit the interaction with the pharmaceutical industry following this training by modifying their practices. The generalization of this training would be desirable for the interns who followed it.
