Étude de facteurs intrinsèques au patient sur la réception d'un affichage en salle d'attente

Abstract : The waiting room display is a very practical tool that allows the general practitioner to communicate with patients. Through this intermediary, messages of an informative, educational or preventive nature can be delivered to them. The poster must be clearly visible for patients to take an interest in and read it (this is the reception of the poster) in order to acquire the information provided by it. This thesis aims to identify patientspecific factors (intrinsic factors) that could make them less attentive or receptive to waiting room posters. To do this, we carried out a quantitative observational study in which data was collected in 2 medical practices from 263 adult subjects. The percentage of patient readers is 75.66%. We have seen that prolonged cell phone use while waiting decreases the interest that patients may have in displays and therefore can hinder the prevention work carried out by the general practitioner through posters. Moreover, neither patient gender nor age had an impact on their receptiveness to posters. Having said that, we have a strong suspicion that men between the ages of 26 and 40 show less interested in them. Accompaniment, stress or pain do not influence patient's attention to posters. Finally, due to methodological concerns we were unable to conclude the role of mood or doctor-patient relationship in the reception of the display.
