Points de vue d'adolescents ayant réalisé un passage à l'acte suicidaire : quelles attentes ont-ils de leur relation à leur médecin traitant

Abstract : Introduction: In France, suicide is the second leading cause of death among adolescents, by making a major public health problem. The research objective of this work consists in analysing, through the experiences of adolescents who have undergone a suicidal act, their expectations with their attending physician in terms of relationship and care. Material and Method: A qualitative study by semi-structured interviews was conducted with adolescents initially taken care for a suicide attempt at the C.H.U. of Nîmes. Results: Ten teenagers aged 13 to 18 were interviewed. The thematic analysis made it possible to meet the main objective. Adolescents expect their attending physician to listen empathetically and without judgement, they wish to be received alone in consultation and in accordance with medical confidentiality. The general practitioner must look for secondary requests behind a reason for somatic consultation and recall his functions of somatic management but also psychological or relational. Conclusion: The general practitioner may represent a resource person for his adolescent patient in a situation of psychological suffering. The duration of the relationship is a major asset in this respect. The introduction of a biannual consultation could improve the attending-adolescent relationship and encourage dialogue.
