Description de la surveillance de la dénutrition des patients âgés de plus de 70 ans, atteints de cancer, par leurs médecins généralistes, en Gironde

Abstract : Introduction: managing undernutrition is essential in oncogeriatry and is based on coordination of care with medicine in town. The objective is to produce an overview of detection of cancer patients’ over 70 undernutrition by general practitioners in Gironde. Material and method: observational, descriptive, transverse study, as a survey of practice thanks to an anonymous questionnaire sent by email has been undertaken from 07/01/2019 to 09/30/2019. Inclusion criterion were : being installed to practice general medicine, treating cancer patients over 70. The primary endpoint was the conduction of a medical consultation dedicated to undernutrition. Secondary endpoints were to highlight difficulties faced and identify some representations on undernutrition. Results: 77 general practitioners have been included. 14 % declared exercising a dedicated consultation without significant difference related to age, type of practice and interviews, cancer type, or beliefs. Lack of training (27 %), time constraints (26 %), data collection difficulties (21 %), lack of tools (21 %) and lack of interest (5 %) were the identified difficulties to search for undernutrition. An information brochure would be useful (87 %). Discussion: only few general practitioners dedicate a specific consultation to undernutrition in oncogeriatry. Improving medical actors’ coordination, developing appropriate tools, allowing a financial valorization and offering a summary sheet are the axes proposed to improve diagnosis.
