Quel est le vécu du médecin généraliste de l’utilisation de la téléconsultation durant la première vague épidémique de la crise COVID-19 ?

Abstract : Background : during COVID-19, confinement is decreed in France on March 16, 2020. Physicians are encouraged to use teleconsultation. Their experience regarding this practice is poorly explored. The aim of this study is to explore general practitioners’ experience in the use of teleconsultation during the first epidemic wave in the north side of Reunion island. Method : making of a phenomenologic qualitative study by semi-structured interviews, face to face or by videoconferencing, between May 2020 and January 2021. Data triangulation were done between researchers. Results : teleconsultation’s emergency establishment created fears and resignation, heightened by socio-demographic and epidemic specificities of the island. However, physicians were satisfied with being able to ensure continuity of care. Despite this, numerous are physicians frustrated by teleconsultation, which is found inadequated to their rôle, and are outraged by making a lower quality medicine. Discussion : the study’s originality and the methodology, adapted to experience’s exploring, are the strengths of the study. The work by 5 researchers increases external validity. Interpretation bias was limited by data triangulation. Recruitment and investigative bias remains. Conclusion : the pandemic is a stepping stone to the use of teleconsultation, generating various and ambivalent feelings among the physicians. Further work would be useful to explore and understand better these facts.
