Évaluation des connaissances du personnel médical et des cadres de santé des services d’urgence en Gironde sur le plan blanc

Abstract : Objective: the hospital is increasingly facing massive influxes of patients in connection with exceptional health situations, whether epidemic, climatic or social. The white plane is the device set up in the hospital to respond to it. Our study consists of evaluating the knowledge of medical personnel and emergency healthcare workers in Gironde on a white plan. Materials and methods: we proposed a cross-sectional, multicenter epidemiological study. The centers concerned were the Gironde hospitals with an adult emergency department. Every physicians and health executives working in these emergency services were given a questionnaire, apart from those working exclusively in the SAMU / SMUR. The main judgment criterion was the ability to trigger a white plan, through the answer to two questions (who to call and where to find the white plan). Results: 88 subjects were included in 11 centers. 42% of respondents had the minimum knowledge defined by the primary criterion. Univariate analysis found a better response capacity among subjects over 40 years (p <0.01), with a seniority of more than 10 years (p <10 -2), having already received a theoretical training (p <0.02) or practical (p <10-2). The multivariate analysis found a significant difference only for the notion of practical training (RR = 3.4 [1.13 - 10.79]). Conclusion: our study shows a lack of knowledge of the white plan. It is necessary to continue the efforts made in terms of staff training, especially since the only variable showing a real impact on the ability to trigger a white plan is participation in practical exercises.
