Les internes de médecine générale se sentent-ils libres de leurs rencontres avec l’industrie pharmaceutique ? Étude qualitative menée auprès d’internes en médecine générale de l’océan indien

Abstract : Introduction : The pharmaceutical industry is omnipresent during the medical training program of doctors and it influences medical prescriptions. The objective of this work is to understand if general medical students feel free or influenced during their meetings with the pharmaceutical industry. Method : A qualitative study led with general medicine students located in the Indian Ocean, by means of semi-directed conversations and a group interview. Their analysis was made according to the grounded theory method of qualitative analysis using the SONAL software. Results : 13 medical students participated in the study. With regards to the main question posed in the study, the interns often felt that the meetings were pressured upon them, or by themselves. These encounters took place mainly at the hospital, during staffs meetings but also during outpatient training via medical visitors. They felt that their training in independence was insufficient to allow them to have more freedom. Discussion : Medical student do not always feel free to meet with the pharmaceutical industry, mainly due to hierarchical pressure and lack of training. To remedy this would require the elaboration of a charter on independence with regards to the pharmaceutical industry destined for the university master course of La Réunion/ Mayotte and a training of students according to the Pharfree curriculum model of AMSA with an evaluation of these measures on the feeling of the medical students and the economic medical consequences of their actions.
