Connaissances des médecins généralistes libéraux installés à La Réunion en 2020 sur le repérage et le signalement des enfants en danger

Abstract : Introduction : The aim of this study was to assess the ability of general practitioners to identify and report an abused child. The secondary objectives were to assess their knowledge of the child protection system and their expectations of child protection services. Methods : An anonymous digital questionnaire was distributed to liberal general practitioners installed in Reunion Island. Only installed general practitioners were included in this study. A score evaluating the ability of general practitioners to identify and report an abused child have been created. Results : Data collection took place from 05/22/2020 to 09/01/2020. A total of 761 physicians have been contacted and 75 physicians answered the survey. Among the respondents, 20 physicians were excluded because they did not provide any answers for the questions relating to the knowledge score. The mean obtained for the knowledge score was 5.82 out of 12, with a standard deviation of 2.72. The median was 5.33. Among the participants, 39% didn’t know the basic needs of a child and 84% of the physicians were unaware of the existence of the referring physician for child protection. Conclusion : The knowledge of general practitioners allowing them to identify an abused child and alert the competent authorities is insufficient. This result shows that the denial and ignorance of the subject persist despite the reforms.
