Évaluation de la connaissance des recommandations de bonne pratique sur le repérage des femmes victimes de violences conjugales par les chirurgiens-dentistes de Gironde

Abstract : Background : Domestic violence (DV) affects one in ten women. Dentists, who are part of primary healthcare resources, can play an important role in DV screening. Objectives : To evaluate dentist’s knowledge about the French Health Authority‘ s dentists guidelines on DV screening and describe the attitudes and practices of dental surgeons towards a patient victim of DV. Methods : A cross-sectional study was conducted from May to June 2021 among practicing dentists from Gironde using a 16-items questionnaire. Results : On 175 participants, 23% knew about practice guidelines, but only 15,4% of them read it. The majority, 88% of participants thought to have the duty to screen for DV victims among patients, while 96,6% thought they have to orient victims through healthcare settings; only 53,7% thought they have to actually handle the issue for the victim. About 41% of participants had already suspected one of their patients to be a DV victim. In case of DV suspicion on patient, 9,85% of participants sent these patients to CAUVA in Bordeaux, out of 71,4% were hospital dentist. Conclusion : Gironde dentists thought to have a role to play in DV victim screening, but only a few of them did so. Initial education seems to be the most accurate training for help professionals in this fight.
