Signalement des violences entre partenaires intimes : opinions et considérations éthiques et pratiques des médecins généralistes, enquête qualitative

Abstract : Background: on the 30th of July 2020, the French government enacted a new law about the protection of intimate partner violence victims. General practitioners (GPs) are now able to report that violence and ignore medical confidentiality. Primary objective: to highlight GPs’ experience, knowledge and difficulties about the reporting law. Secondary objective: to have some positive impacts on the development and use of this law. Materials and methods: Qualitative study based on semi-directive individual interviews of GPs practising in Aquitaine. Open coding and Grounded Theory analysis. Results: 18 interviews were conducted. Most of GPs known this new law and were in favour of it, but no-one had ever applied it. There are many obstacles to screening and to reporting domestic violence, such as lack of time, the fact this is a taboo theme and lack of continuing education. To improve care, new support for practice should be developed for GPs. Conclusion: study’s results show that Aquitaine’s GPs have a lack of experience in reporting domestic violence, however they want to enhance their knowledge in order to improve healthcare and protect their patients.
