Attentes des femmes victimes de violence conjugale envers leur médecin généraliste dans les départements de Haute-Savoie et de l’Ain

Abstract : Introduction: Intimate partner violence (IPV ) is a frequent and under-estimated problematic, causing severe consequences on the health of women and on society in general. The main objective of this study was to describe the expectations of female victims of IPV towards their general practitioner (GP). Methods: This was a multicentric descriptive epidemiological study, conducted form December 2019 to May 2020 in Ain and Haute-Savoie, taking part in a national work by Dr Mathilde VICARD. A census of help and care units for IPV victims in Ain and Haute- Savoie was undertaken, and listed on www.declicviolence.fr. Self-administered surveys destined to IPV victims were left in non-profit organizations willing to partake in our study. Results: Six non-profit organizations were listed, five participated and 42 surveys were recorded. 92,7% of women had seen their GP during the last year. The vast majority of women (81%) wished their GP had brought up the issue of IPV, and believed that raising the question was within the role of a GP (78,6%). The subject of IPV was brought up by the GP in 40,5% of the cases, and by the women in 28,6% of cases. Discussion: Women victims of IPV expect their their GP to broach the subject of IPV. A systematic screening of IPV therefore appears relevant. It would be interesting to widen the study to women less advanced in the process of dealing with IPV, to establish its acceptability. MeSH terms : intimate partner violence, general practitioner, primary healthcare.
