Troubles cognitifs liés a l’alcool et représentations en médecine générale : une revue narrative

Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to highlight the similarities between the barriers developed by general practitioners in supporting patients with alcohol use disorders and the semiology of alcohol-related cognitive disorders. Two systematic reviews of the literature were conducted. One review focused on the symptomatology of alcohol-related cognitive disorders, the second on the obstacles encountered by general practitioners in the management of patients with alcohol misuse. In particular, we found that patients suffering from alcohol-related cognitive deficits were perceived as having little motivation to change their drinking habits and as being in denial about their problems. However, these attitudes could also be the result of cognitive disorders such as dysexecutive syndrome, impaired episodic memory or metamemory. Training in the semiology of cognitive disorders related to alcohol use and the behaviours that these disorders engender could influence the moral perception of general practitioners and encourage them to become more involved in supporting patients. The role of the practitioner, in the field of addictology, would be to identify patients at an early stage and then refer them to professionals who can offer them a therapeutic strategy adapted to their cognitive impairment.
