Formation à la psychiatrie des internes de médecine générale de Grenoble : expériences vécues et attentes

Abstract : Introduction - The psychiatric training of general medicine interns in France is very heterogeneous, even though general practitioners have a predominant role in the management of mental disorders. The objective of this study was to collect the feelings of general practitioners in Grenoble when caring for a patient with a psychological disorder and to highlight their expectations regarding the practical and theoretical training of psychiatry in primary health care. Methods- We conducted a qualitative study by interviewing ten general medicine interns. The data collected were organized using Nvivo 12 ® software and then analyzed using the thematic discourse analysis method. Results - Eight main themes are found: the complexity of psychiatry, a dichotomous vision of psychological disorders, varied feelings, a central role for the general practitioner, the importance of collaboration between professionals, essentially practical learning, missing theoretical training and many suggestions for improvement. They are divided into two thematic areas: lived experiences and experiences of the acquisition of psychiatric skills. Conclusion - The development of outpatient psychiatric internship opportunities and specific teaching by mental health professionals in collaboration with general practitioners could improve the care of patients with mental disorders.
