Le décès d’un patient : la perception de médecins généralistes bretons, étude qualitative par entretiens semi-directifs

Abstract : Introduction: One of the particularities of being a doctor is facing death at work. They are responsible of the quality of life until death. Although unavoidable, a patient’s death is never insignificant for doctors. Our aim is to explore how general practitioners (GPs) deal with their own patient deaths. Methods: Qualitative study by semi-structured interviews of 10 GPs settled in Bretagne. Thematic analysis of their perceptions. Results: GPs’ experience is complex with shared meanings and a multifactorial diversity of their clinical practice and their feelings, their resources and their representations. Conclusion: Being exposed to patient deaths is a factor of bio-psycho-social vulnerability. Enhancing resilience and coping processes, reducing occupational stress particularly thanks to interdisciplinarity are key elements of prevention.
