Médecine générale durable : actions et ressenti des médecins d’Isère et des deux Savoies

Abstract : Introduction: ln the western nations, the health system participates significantly in climate disruption. lt already has an influence on public health, and its consequences will only grow, with even more disastrous consequences. How do general practitioners consider their practice in front of climate change? What are the actions and the perceptions about sustainable medicine in their daily practice? Method: General practitioners of lsere, Savoie and Haute Savoie were included in a qualitative study. Twelve doctors were interviewed from June 2021 to October 2021, either alone or in a focus group. A transcription of each interview was done by one of the investigators. Then, a cross-analysis of the interviews was carried out, using key-word. Results: ln our study, all the family doctors interrogated described themselves as sensitized about global warming. Ali of them have established at least one eco-actions in their practice to get closer to a sustainable medicine. Those eco-actions are two-fold: first of all, actions regarding the management of their practice and secondly concerning the advice for patients. ln our study, the feeling of ineffectiveness, ineffectualness and doubt are frequently found. Discussion: Among the doctors met, it seems that the feeling of not having a significant impact by their actions is often present. To propose an interactive website with a quantitative self-assessed method for evaluating their practice can be a way of improvement. A precise evaluation of each action with personalized feedback could lead to efficient eco-actions and strengthen those already in place.
