Méditation de pleine conscience et médecine générale : enquête auprès des praticiens de Gironde et perspectives de formation

Abstract : Since the late 1970s, there has been a growing body of scientific work demonstrating the value of mindfulness meditation in a wide range of primary care clinical situations, such as depression, anxiety or chronic pains. Mindfulness has also recently been studied for doctors themselves, to respond to growing problems (stress, burn-out, emotional management). The aim of this thesis is to describe the state of theoretical and practical knowledge of general practitioners about mindfulness in Gironde and to propose suitable training opportunities. A descriptive cross-sectional study was carried out, with an exhaustive collection of data thanks to a questionnaire sent by email. As a result of this work, most general practitioners in Gironde have already heard about (95%) and practiced (57.5%) mindfulness meditation. Doctors who haven’t practiced it regret never having had the opportunity to (65.8%) and lament the lack of information (11.6%). General practitioners are interested in the subject (91.1%) and would like to train in mindfulness, whether they have (53.4%) or not (74.8%) already practiced it. Their motivations are mainly professional: stress and emotional management, patient information and orientation, but also personal. Concluded from the answers, a 2h weekly training session over 6 weeks with daily practice of 15 minutes per day could be considerated. This is a preliminary descriptive study that gives paths to mindfulness training adapted to general practitioners which remain to be fully explored.
