La vaccination contre le papillomavirus et ses dernières recommandations : état des connaissances des médecins généralistes calvadosiens

Abstract : Outcome. HPV vaccination has been recommended in France since 2006. Nevertheless, vaccination coverage remains low, with 23% of young girls receiving a full course. In contrast, Australia has vaccinated 80% of girls and 76% of boys in its population. In addition, new recommendations concerning the vaccination of boys have recently been promulgated. General practitionners have a central role in vaccination. The main objective was to evaluate the knowledge of general practitioners in Calvados. We also wanted to raise awareness among GPs by updating their knowledge with a "memo" booklet to support their consultations. Method. A questionnaire with 18 questions was sent to a random sample of 240 general practitioners. We obtained an overall score out of 18. Results. 101 responses were returned. The overall score obtained was 7.44/18 (40%), the scores in the subcategories were 1.70/4 (43%) for the general section, 1.17/6 (20%) for oncogenesis and 4.56/8 (57%) for vaccination. Women and group physicians had significantly higher scores (p=0.034 and p=0.028), as did physicians who recommended vaccination to their relatives (p=0.023). Conclusion. The vaccination recommendations are generally well known among Calvados general practitioners. However, general knowledge of HPV and its consequences seems to be lower: this could explain the difficulty in arguing and promoting this vaccination.
