Personnes âgées : transmission de l'information médicale en gériatrie

Abstract : Ageing of French population is a phenomenon know for several years with currently more than a quarter of the population being over 60 years old. This ageing is not homogeneous between individuals: for same it is successful, for others it is usual or pathological. Thus, more than a million people have cognitive function disorders which are more or less disabling. At the same time, French society is evolving with a growing desire for autonomy in many areas such as health with a desire to definitively get out of paternalistic medicine practiced before. How to reconcile cognitive impairment and the provision of medical information to obtain free and informed consent and allow elderly people to be actors in their health? To lead this reflection, I conducted, between January and March 2019, an unicentric practice survey with distribution of questionnaires composed of 4 open questions to geriatricians of the geriatric shortstay service of CHU in Caen. The results show that these specialits promote the autonomy of their patients according to different methods: repetition of information given with language adapted to the school level, reformulation by the patient, systematic geriatric evaluation, solicitation of relatives (family, trusted person, caregiver). In addition, other means are being expanded and already used by paramedical staff such as temporality and valorization of body language with the use of the senses.
