État des lieux de la prescription des traitements nicotiniques de substitution par les masseurs-kinésithérapeutes libéraux de la région Bretagne

Abstract : Since January 22nd, 2016, French physiotherapists have the right to prescribe nicotine replacement therapies (NRT). It is a helpful measure to quit smoking. The aim of this study is to provide an overview of nicotine replacement therapies’ prescription by private physiotherapists in Brittany. Method : an online survey was distributed to Brittany’s private physiotherapists, from November 2020 to January 2021. Results : 79 answers were analyzed. Results showed that 84% of physiotherapists know this right but only 6% have ever done this prescription. The main problem detected in this study is the lack of continuing education: physiotherapists don’t feel able to prescribe NRT. However, 84% believe that physiotherapists have a role to play in helping people quit smoking and 39% would like training on this subject. Discussion : these results show the importance of carrying out initial and continuous training on this subject for physiotherapists. In future research, it would be useful to propose training in different forms and then analyse which are most effective in order to enable physiotherapists to feel relevant to prescribe NRT. I
