Prise en charge médico-psychologique immédiate aux urgences des personnes adultes victimes d'agressions sexuelles : revue systématique de la littérature

Abstract : Introduction: the high prevalence of sexual assaults is particularly worrying considering the significant psychological consequences it can have on those who are victims. Sexual violence appears to have more impact on mental health than any other form of traumatic event. As a result, the psychological care of victims of sexual assault has become a major public health problem. There is immediate formalized medico-psychological treatment for victims of collective traumatic events. The purpose of this paper is to find out if this also exists for those victims of sexual assault. Method: a systematic review of the literature was conducted by exploring the Pubmed, PsycINFO and SUDOC databases. Results: there is much consensus on the immediate medico- psychological care for victims of sexual assault; particularly when it comes to how victims are welcomed, the initial assessment, the therapeutic interventions, the information to be given to the patient and the subsequent orientation after early treatment. Discussion: multiple aspects of how victims of collective traumatic are treated should be applied to victims of sexual assault. This requires for carers to be trained accordingly and for the organization of care to be reconsidered. Conclusion: medico-psychological care structural proposals for patients immediately after a sexual assault are made in order to include as much as possible the various care givers (gynecology, forensic medicine and psychiatry), and other judicial and social actors, and in a dynamic perspective taking into account the potential evolution of the victim.
