Évaluation du vécu des parents à la suite d’une information de prévention donnée par les médecins généralistes à l’aide d’un outil de prévention, sur les risques liés à l’exposition aux écrans chez les enfants de moins de trois ans

Abstract : Introduction: the exposure to screens in children under the age of three is responsible for adverse health effects. The prevention of these risks by general practitioners is currently limited. We asked ourselves whether it could be improved. Our objective was to analyse parents' experiences following information given by general practitioners, using a prevention tool, on the risks associated with screen exposure in children under three years of age. Materials and methods: we conducted a qualitative study by semi-structured individual interviews with parents of children between five and 12 months of age. They had received oral and written preventive information from general practitioners. The practitioners had been made aware of the risks of screen exposure in children thanks to the drafting of a scientific reference document. Results: 16 parents were surveyed. They showed interest and satisfaction in the prevention approach taken by general practitioners. They felt informed and supported in their own educational approach. It was an opportunity for discussion within the couple and even a change in behaviour. The main difficulty encountered was getting the message to reach the child's entourage, including the other parent. Conclusion: the prevention of screen-related risks by general practitioners seems to have been experienced as acceptable and desirable by parents. It could be generalised and extended to other early childhood professionals.
