Le rôle du médecin généraliste dans la lutte contre la surexposition aux écrans des enfants

Abstract : Background : Children's screen overexposure causes many adverse effects. In France, recommendations exist to regulate their use. General practitioners are not very active in the prevention of screen exposure. Method : A before/after quantitative study was carried out among parents of children under 6 years old. A survey of their daily habits has been conducted among these parents followed by an intervention outlining the adverse effects and the recommendations for the use of screens. The same survey was carried out 3 months after the intervention. Results : 80 children has been involved. After 3 months, an improvement has been observed on at least one of the criteria relating to screen use for 71 % of the children, especially on stopping screens during meals (p=0.019) and before sleeping (p=0.02). Parents are more aware of the adverse effects of screen overexposure. Conclusion : The information provided by general practitioners is effective in prevention of the screen overexposure. This subject should be discussed in consultation at the earliest age.
