Quels sont les freins à l’exercice libéral de la Gériatrie ? Enquête qualitative par entretiens individuels semi-dirigés auprès de 11 gériatres

Abstract : Introduction: private practices of geriatricians are not well established in France. Meanwhile, with an aging population and the advantages of a medical care specialized in elderly patients, an increase of this activity could be beneficial. The primary objective of this study was to investigate the limiting steps toward the practice of geriatric medicine in private practice. Method: a qualitative study interviewing 11 geriatricians (in hospital and/or private practice) by semi-oriented questions has been conducted from October 2018 until January 2019. Data have been analyzed by thematic clustering. Results: despite numerous positive factors promoting the establishment of geriatricians in private practices, many factors are currently limiting their development. Two main factors have been identified: an inconsistent nomenclature towards the length of the medical act and a scope of work not well defined between geriatricians and general physicians. Other limiting factors such as heavy administrative work, lack of recognition and the foreseen complexity in working with healthcare networks have also been mentioned. Conclusion: to enable the development of geriatric private practice, the role of geriatricians needs to be better defined and clarified to the students in medicine during their studies. Also, the current nomenclature needs to be adapted to this specialty.
