Mesures barrières en période d’épidémie de COVID-19 : état des lieux chez les médecins généralistes de Gironde

Abstract : The COVID-19 epidemic has caused an urgent reorganization in France of the supply of care among general practitioners. The main objective of this thesis is to determine whether the recommendations concerning barrier measures in the general practice have been followed and to determine the differences between the recommendations and the actual practice of general practitioners. The secondary objective was to identify the constraints and difficulties encountered by physicians in applying these recommendations. This is a descriptive quantitative study carried out with general practitioners in Gironde. Interviews were carried out based on a questionnaire summarizing the recommendations concerning the barrier measures to be applied in the cabinet. The study included 40 general practitioners. Only the recommendation to wash hands between each patient was respected by all of the physicians questioned. Other recommendations were applied by a majority (consultations by appointment, wearing of professional attire, wearing a mask, ventilation of the premises, etc.), others little respected (dedicated waiting room, washing equipment hands in the waiting room, disinfection of instruments between each patient, waste management, etc.). The doctors put forward spatial, temporal and financial constraints to explain this non-compliance. As a barrier to membership, we also find insufficient communication and dissemination, an absence of centralization of recommendations. The improvement of initial and continuing training in pandemic management, the simplification of recommendations, more precise and centralized communication, more substantial funding for medical equipment and a change in the specifications for the construction of future premises for medical practices are avenues for improving the future adherence of general practitioners to the recommendations.
