Les déterminants du temps de travail des médecins généralistes en Savoie

Abstract : Objective: To find out what are the individual and professional factors that can influence the working time of liberal general practitioners in Savoie (France). Methods: A questionnaire was sent by e-mail to general practitioners registered on the Council of the Order of Doctors and telephone reminder calls were made. It included questions about the personal characteristics of the responding physicians; a second part concerned the professional aspect of established doctors and the last part was about the average weekly working time. Results: 163 GPs answered, that is a response rate of 35%. The average working time per week was 42.8 ± 10.5 hours. The difference between men (45.9 hours) and women (39.7 hours) was significant p <0.001 (95% CI, [-1.96, 1.96]). Likewise, physicians less than 45 years of age reported working less than those over 45, p <0.001 (95% CI, [-1.96, 1.96]). Substitutes physicians had a shorter working time than the Installed physicians p = 0.001 (95% CI, [-1.96, 1.96]). The profession of the spouses and husbands of physicians influenced working time; as well as the number of general practitioners in the office, the Saturday morning work and the number of weeks not worked per year. Discussion: Gender, age, and substitutes / installed status are the main determinants of the working time of general practitioners in Savoie.
