La photo-protection pour la prévention des cancers cutanés, par les médecins généralistes de la région Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur : pratiques et connaissances

Abstract : Introduction: the Haute Autorité de Santé (HAS) in France and the Société Française de Dermatologie (SFD) recommend that the generalist physicians reinforce the identification of risk factors and the prevention of skin cancers. The prevention is photoprotection, first of all mechanical. Objective: to describe the practices and knowledge of skin cancer prevention, including photoprotection, by generalist physicians in the Provence-Alpes-Côte-d'Azur region (PACA). Methods: survey of practices and knowledge (2021) including generalist physicians of PACA. Criteria evaluated: the practice of identifying skin cancer risk factors according to HAS criteria, the practice of advising on photoprotection according to the recommendations of the SFD, their knowledge and the knowledge of topical sun products. Results: of 106 practitioners included, 37% screened and advised photoprotection for all patients at risk of skin cancer (30% for all patients). Professional exposure, frequency of sunburn and immunosuppression were poorly wanted. When it comes to providing photoprotective advice, 50% of the responses follow the SFD message (clothing and behavioural protection, topicals as the last line). 79% correct knowledge of this information. The deficiencies are on sand and photoprotective clothing. There is a minority (43%) of correct knowledge of topicals. Discussion: a significant gap exists between the practitioner's knowledge of photoprotection and its transmission to patients. A simple message, focused on mechanical protection, adapted to the type of exposure, supported by a patient’advice card, can be suggested.
