Évolution de la relation médecin-patient avec l’hypnopraxie, selon les médecins généralistes réunionnais

Abstract : The use of thérapeutic hypnosis in general pratice satisfied both patients and physicians and improve physician-patient relations. Hypnopraxia is an hypnotherapeutic approach, affective and integrative. The main purpose of the study was to explore the evolution of the physician-patient relations related to Hypnopraxia, according to general practitioners from Réunion Island. Our secondary goal was to explore general practitioners’s evolution, personal and professional. The study was qualitative, using grounded theory. Data was collected throught semi-structured interviews with general practitioner from Réunion island, trained in hypnopraxia, up to data’s saturation. Eight physicians were interviewed between april ant september 2017. We demonstraded that Hypnopraxia rehumanized physician-patient relations. Hypnopraxia training helped the physician in his personal development, by curing himself before treating patients, and by relativising his caregiving duty. This brought a new philosophy of work. The physician changed his daily way of working, throught a best communication, a presence for the patient, a consideration of his psycho-emotional ground, in order to reveal the patient. He blossomed professionnlly thanks to this humanization of care, he felt useful and valued. Thereby, he protected himself from professional burnout. Physician-patient relation becamed stronger, more fair, based on complicity and interchange. Hpnopraxia is a therapeutic approach in accordance with the holistic role of the general practitioner and with patient’s expectations. So it would be interesting to incorpore it in the medical training
