Les attentes de lecture des blogs médicaux par les jeunes médecins généralistes d’Amiens, Caen et Lille

Abstract : Objective: to explore the reading expectations of medical blogs by the young general practitioners of the faculties of Amiens, Caen and Lille. Material and method: qualitative study based on semi-directed individual interviews with young general practitioners from Amiens, Caen and Lille, recruited on a voluntary basis, from June to December 2018, until data saturation. The analysis was performed using an inductive approach. Results: In reading medical blogs, the young general practitioners come looking for a global vision of medicine, putting forward experiences that will allow them to understand their medical career and the constraints related to it. They also find certain psycho-social aspects of the doctor-patient relationship, a perpetual source of reflexivity about their activity. Reading medical blogs is also a complementary tool to medical education that could be interestingly integrated into the university’s curriculum. In addition, these practitioners who read medical blogs identify with a real virtual medical community, who fights against isolation and is source of reassurance. If it seems that this reading brings some benefits in terms of professionalism, it remains, above all, a form of entertainment. Finally, it should be noted that blogs already seem to be losing the readers’ interest in favor of social media. Conclusion: the integration of medical blogs in university education could meet the need, for young general practitioners, of a transition between the academic world and the professional practice of medicine.
