Kréolité et médecine générale : Représentations et ressentis de la langue créole par les patients créolophones en consultation de médecine générale

Abstract : Aim : Linguistic dualtity between french speaking practians and creole speaking patients retricts their relation. This cleavage is accentuated by the existence of many traditionnal medecines alongside occidental medecine. Purpose : We would like to study the patients’ representations and feelings when creole is used in a general practitionner’s consultation. Population and method : Grounded theory qualitative study based upon 14 individuals interviews and 1 pair interview, semi-directed. Interviewed were oppotunistically sampled and enrolled in general practionners’ offices in the island’s south part. Interviews were conducted from october 2018 and june 2020. Results : The creole use facilitating factors are : an age >60, a modest socio-professional category, a rural way of life, a proudness of his/her own culture, a natural et soothing langage. The factors which prevent from using this langage are : an age <30, a higher socio-professional category, an urban way of life, some travels overseas. Langage and creole individual’s inferiority feeling affect the use of this langage in consultations and inhibit the patient’s expression. A « creole attitude » provides an educationnal posture, along with a downside of be seen as unprofessional. Conclusion : Creolity in general practionners’ consultations is a lever in order to access creole-speaking patients’ feeling. Facilitating educationnal posture, it could be integrated in therapeutic education’s module of Reunion island general practionner formation.
