Les pratiques de dépistage des troubles du spectre autistique par les internes de médecine générale

Abstract : Introduction: The latest regional autism plan in Normandy aimed to increase the training in detecting autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) and their early guidance by general practitioners. The practice of current students in third cycle in general practice hasn’t yet been explored. The main objective of this study was to explore the practices of screening for ASDs in children aged 16 months to 4 years included by general medicine students in third cycle. Method: a qualitative study through semi-structured interviews of ending diploma students in third cycle in general practice. Results: The students explicitly practiced screening for ASDs based on their knowledge. They knew the warning signs for ASDs but were not always comfortable with testing for ASDs or they felt they were not doing it appropriately. But without realizing it and despite a feeling of incompetence, the students performed, often implicitly, daily screening for ASDs. Conclusion: The ending diploma students in third cycle in general practice screened children for ASDs, but rather informally and they made little use of the tools at their disposal. The platform of the TSA-TND (neurodevelopmental disorders) coordination and early guidance is being deployed in Normandy. This tool is to be valued and optimised in order to make easier the practice of screening by general practitioners.
