Comment prendre en charge, en médecine générale, des patients souffrant de leurs conditions de travail ? Étude qualitative auprès de patients

Abstract : Background: The work conditions suffering, to its health, economic, and social impact, is a complex subject. General practitioners (GPs) are concerned by this phenomenon. However the specific role of GPs in caring for work conditions suffering patients is scarcely described in literature. This study aims at understanding the position given to GPs by individuals with work-related problems. Method: We conducted a qualitative study on individuals who reported troubles linked to their work conditions, in the districts Hautes-Alpes and Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, in France. Semi-directed interviews were conducted with adults showing a present or past work-related problems experience. Data were anonymised and transcribed into verbatim. A grounded theory thematic analysis led to the identification of the different protagonists involved in the suffering worker's experience, including the general practitioner. Results: Factors leading to the suffering of individuals were multiples, many flaws in their work conditions were noted. We could differentiate requested protagonists and non requested protagonists, both helpful or harmful. Among requested protagonists, the general practitioner had a relatively secondary position unless the attend of the workplace became unbearable and a sick leave was asked for. Patients asked their GPs to take care of somatic or psychic pathology or symptoms, linked or caused by work-related problems. Conclusion: The general practitioner is not the first choice of individuals suffering from their work conditions. Nonetheless the capacity of removing them off an harmful environment is an essential therapeutic tool by the patients point of view.
