Évaluation de l’orientation des patientes en demande d’IVG par les médecins généralistes de Bordeaux Métropole

Abstract : Introduction: abortion is a major breakthrough in women's freedom and rights. Since 2009, drug induced abortion are permitted outside hospitals for a term less than 7 SA, by doctors officially recognized and by midwives since 2016. However, early access to this act is sometimes difficult. Objective: the main objective of our study was to evaluate the orientation of patients asking for a drug induced abortion by general practitioners in Bordeaux. The secondary objectives were to show the lack of knowledge of the city-hospital network by general practitioners and to try to set up a professional phonebook. Method: we realised a descriptive observational study of the practices of the general practitioners of Bordeaux between October 2018 and July 2019. In addition, we asked the practitioners of the city-hospital network about their desire to be part of a phonebook intended for professionals. Results: during the study period, 876 general practitioners were interviewed, 125 responded to the questionnaire (response rate was 14.3%). For patients with a term of less than 7 weeks, 29.6% of patients are referred to the hospital. General practitioners presented guidance difficulties in 38.4% of cases and reported a desire for better information in 90.4% of cases. Conclusion: this study demonstrate the lack of knowledge of the guidelines for the management of patients in need of drug induced abortion and the need to improve the city-hospital network by creating a phonebook for health professionals.
