Étude qualitative sur le vécu des médecins généralistes de l'Hérault face au sevrage en alcool

Abstract : General practitioners are first in line for the identification and support of patients of alcohol. OBJECTIVE: The main objective was to assess the experiences of practitioners of the Hérault against alcohol withdrawal. METHOD: This is a qualitative study based on a questionnaire produced during interviews with general practitioners in the Herault. The recruitment of interview participants ended when saturation of data collection was reached. RESULTS: Most doctors have no specific training in addiction. Alcohol consumption is usually approached according to the patient’s profile and not in a systematic way. Relapse is integrated as part of the history of withdrawal. The opinions diverge with regard to total abstinence or consumption controlled from alcohol. Half of the doctors is not at ease with this type of assumption of responsibility. The majority of doctors favour an hospital stay during the acute phase of withdrawal. General medical consultations are considered insufficient due to lack of time and training in addiction. The majority think that external assistance would be required. Few doctors know addictology networks. CONCLUSION: Doctors feel most of the time isolated and destitute to their patient, more especially as the access at the appropriate time to the hospital structures appears difficult to them.
