Quelles sont les attentes des patients consultant pour une gastro-entérite aiguë en médecine générale ? : étude qualitative auprès de 12 patients ayant consulté pour ce motif par entretien semi-dirigé

Abstract : Introduction: Acute gastroenteritis (AGE) in general medicine is a frequent and benign pathology, its management seems to be known not only to doctors but also by patients. In this context, the objective of our study was to discover the expectations of patients consulting for this pathology. Method: Qualitative study though semi-structured interviews among 12 patients who consulted their general practitioner for a AGE. Results: The patients consulted for one main reason, but our study finally confirmed that their expectations are multiple. The demand for a drug prescription and a sick leave recurred frequently among the patients interviewed. They also evoke the need to remove uncertainty both from a diagnostic point of view, in the face of certain unrecognized signs such as AGE or to eliminate a more serious pathology, than medicinal products, unknown molecules, the need for rapid effective treatment, ignorance of the drugs available in free sale. Their other expectations were the need for support, advice or reassurance, but also to keep in touch with their doctor or to take advantage of this consultation opportunity to broach other subjects. The patients were satisfied with this consultation which they found useful. Some of them would like to be independent in the management of this disease, but many conditions for this desire for autonomy appear. Conclusion: This consultation mobilizes the technical, scientific but also relational skills of the doctor, who through his listening abilities should allow patients to verbalize all their expectations.
