Accès direct à la massokinésithérapie en France : enquête d’opinion auprès des masseurs-kinésithérapeutes français

Abstract : French patients need a referral from a physician to access physiotherapy. In some countries, direct access to physiotherapy is allowed. The aim of this study is to survey what French physiotherapists (PTs) think about direct access. Methods: Nine interviews were conducted to construct an online survey (Limesurvey). Professional organizations and social networks relayed the survey to French PTs. All French PTs could answer. Results : 2,711 PTs answered the survey (3 % of the PT population). 92.03 % of PTs think they have sufficient skills to manage direct access (65.14 % in one or several physiotherapy areas and 26.89 % in all physiotherapy areas). A large number of PTs (86.17%) would support a direct access model, but there are obstacles to introduce it immediately in France. Discussion and conclusion : Compared to the large number of private practice PTs (2,493), too few salaried PTs (86) answered the survey to consider this sample as representative. Moreover, people who disagree with direct access may not have participated. Further studies are needed to explore French PTs’ skills and come to a conclusion about the safety of this model and the potential risk for patients.
