Attentes des femmes victimes de violences conjugales envers leur médecin généraliste en Isère et Savoie

Abstract : Introduction: Intimate partner violence (IPV) affects about one in ten women. It induces the death of one woman every three days. More than 30% of women consulting a general practitioner (GP) are victims of IPV. This study aimed to describe the expectations of women victims of IPV towards their GP, their consultation features over the last year, and some barriers to mention the issue of IPV. In addition, we identified the organizations helping women victims of IPV in Isère and Savoie, so as to enrich the website Methods: This descriptive multi-centric epidemiological study was carried out from November 2019 to April 2020, in Isère and Savoie. This study took part in a national work. The self-administered surveys were filled by the women victims of IPV consulting a victim support association. Results: Eleven associations were listed, seven participated and 28 surveys were collected. 93 % of women consulted their GP at least once over the past year, often for psychological reasons. The issue of IPV was tackled by the GP only in 21 % of the cases. 92 % of women would have wished or would have rather wished their GP to touch on the issue of IPV, 85 % of them thought that addressing this problem is part of their GP’s role. Discussion: More systematic screening of IPV by the GP seems to be relevant. To reach this aim, GP’s training about that issue should be improved. For a future study, a recruitment in legal medicine departments would allow to obtain a larger sample of women victims of IPV.
