Ouverture des centres médicaux avancés dans les Pyrénées-Atlantiques durant la pandémie de COVID-19 : retour d'expérience des professionnels de santé

Abstract : Context: the COVID-19 pandemic has shaken up the French health system, leading to an unexpected health crisis. Primary care, feeling excluded from the management of this crisis, decided to open Advanced Medical Centres (AMCs) to safely examine suspected Covid 19 patients outside of medical practices. Objectives: explore and analyse the motivations and difficulties encountered by health professionals in charge of setting up the AMC. Methods: qualitative study with individual semi-directed interviews. Results: 15 professionals were interviewed. Data saturation was reached in the 13th interview. The main motivations expressed were: a feeling of anxiety due to a lack of physical protection equipment, the need to reassure themselves and their patients, the reduction of contamination risks and the maintenance of continuity of care. They stressed a heavy workload and a lack of material and moral support from health institutions. The government's management of this crisis was negatively perceived by the doctors. They were positive about the experience and had the ambition to reorganise primary care by improving town/hospital communication and expanding the territorial professional health communities and the access to care service throughout the territory. Conclusion: primary care has shown its ability to anticipate and adapt to continue its role as a primary care provider during this pandemic. It seems essential that it should have an important place in the management of health crises in the future.
