Le médecin généraliste face aux violences conjugales à La Réunion

Abstract : Background : Spouse abuse constitutes a real public health issue. Recently highlighted during the “ Grenelle des violences conjugales” in 2019, it is currently at the center of several discussions between actors from the political, social, judicial, associative and health professional spheres. Reunion island was the third most affected region by spouse abuse in 2017. The general practitioner, who is often consulted by victims as a first resort, is a key element in the care process. The study’s objective was to determine how the general practitioner deals with situations of spouse abuse in Reunion island. Method : Qualitative study with a grounded theorizing approach. The study involved 14 interviews with general practitioners in different Reunion Island’s areas. Results : The open analysis and initial tagging led to a one hundred codes’ book. The analysis of these codes revealed 5 categories: receiving the revelation of conjugal violence, being able to orientate, having the audacity to approach the subject, practicing in Reunion Island and developing one's practice. The results were modeled in schematic form, thus providing a better understanding of the processes involved and the general practitioner's specific needs. Conclusion : Aware of the subject of domestic violence, the general practitioner possesses good theoretical knowledge, but may sometimes feel isolated. In order to create or enhance links with the other partners of the network, we propose a tool for helping the general practitioners in their practice in Reunion island.
