Conséquences des agressions dans le cadre professionnel des médecins généralistes libéraux de Gironde

Abstract : Introduction: violence and agressions towards general practitioners are more and more frequent. Liberal general practitioners are in the first line of fire because of the primary care they provide. The main objective is to identify the consequences of aggressions in the professional environment of liberal general practitioners in Gironde. The secondary objectives are to characterize the type of aggression experienced and to assess the impact and experience of physicians in the face of aggression. Material and method: this is a quantitative observational study. Data were collected using a self-administered survey. A descriptive analysis of the variables and bivariate analyses with statistical tests were performed (Chi-2, Fisher). Results: 80 physicians note consequences to their aggression (60%). The most suffered type of aggression is verbal (94%). Three physicians (2.1%) were on sick leave. In terms of repercussions, the doctors reported anxiety and a deterioration in working conditions. There was a significant difference between practice pattern and receiving support from a colleague (p = 0,004). Women were significantly younger than men (p<0.0001) and were more likely to talk personally to those around them (p<0.0001). Discussion: liberal general practitioners in Gironde are concerned by aggressions in their professional practice. This may change the relationship with their patients. Training physicians to manage aggressive patients and facilitating incident reporting would reduce aggression. Conclusion: attacks on general practitioners are becoming more and more frequent. It seems necessary to train and support them in order to prevent recurrences of aggression.
