Évaluation d’une notice d’information sur les solutés de réhydratation orale : étude qualitative auprès de professionnels de santé et d’usagers

Abstract : The acute gastroenteritis (AGE), a frequent pathology of the young child, is responsible for a medical socioeconomic burden in industrialized countries. A simple, effective and little expensive treatment exists, the oral rehydration solution (ORS). The use of the ORS by parents and caregivers is rather low. The drug package leaflet is an easy-to-access information tool. Existing drug package leaflet of ORS contains incomplete or contradictory informations, source of confusion for users, slowing down their use of the ORS. The objective of our work was to propose a drug package leaflet for ORS, validated by healthcare professionals and tested from the point of view of the legibility and the understanding of the users. We developed a drug package leaflet based on the current recommendations. We then collected the opinion of 11 healthcare professionals among general practitioners, pediatricians and pharmacists via online iterative questionnaires according to the Delphi technique. Then we tested the obtained drug package leaflet from the point of view of the legibility and the understanding with 20 users among parents and grandparents through the conduct of individual interviews. This test came out positive with the obtaining of drug package leaflet containing readable and understandable informations for the users and in agreement with the recommendations. The diffusion of this drug package leaflet to the users could improve their knowledge on the ORS, favor its spontaneous and early use and so decrease the failures of treatment by ORS, complications and hospitalizations in case of GEA of the young child.
