Évaluation des perceptions et des pratiques médicales des médecins généralistes installés en Corse vis-à-vis de l’endométriose

Abstract : Introduction: endometriosis is a public health challenge and general practice hold and will hold an increasingly important place in the diagnosis and management of endometriosis. It seems important to know the perception and medical practices of GPs about this disease, with a view to creating a care network centered on this disease. Method: qualitative study by semi-directed interviews with 11 general practitioners installed in a liberal setting. Results and discussion: endometriosis was perceived as a complex, chronic and debilitating disease. GPs admitted a lack of knowledge as a whole, due to a lack of medical training and a lack of access to information. Women practiced gynecology more and were more sensitive than men. The intervention of general practitioners was punctual, based on the treatment of pain and psychological support. Their place in the diagnosis, management and follow-up of the disease itself remained to be defined, opinions differed depending on the interest and the medical practices desired. The follow-up focused on the overall care of the patients. They were seeking training, and improved communication with specialists Conclusion: physicians are aware of a necessary change in their daily practice. They consider their place in orientation, accompaniment and coordination and overall care of patients. There is a difference in approach and practice between male and female doctors. The healthcare network could promote a homogeneous practice towards endometriosis by general practitioners.
