Évaluation de la faisabilité et de l'acceptabilité d'un outil informatique de dépistage des infections sexuellement transmissibles par les médecins généralistes en soins premiers à La Réunion

Abstract : Background: Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are a major public health problem. In general practice, screening remains insufficient, notably due to the workload and the difficulty of addressing sexuality. In order to improve screening by general practitioners (GPs), a computerized screening tool has been created. Objectives: To assess the feasibility of the tool and the acceptability of its future use by primary care physicians. Secondary objectives were to evaluate the evolution of GPs' knowledge of STI screening, to assess their satisfaction and to identify the obstacles encountered in using the tool. Method: Cross-sectional descriptive opinion survey of GPs in Reunion Island, during the period from December 2020 to July 2021. The evaluated tool, accessible online, allows, according to a decision algorithm, to propose if necessary an adapted screening according to the current recommendations. The study was based on two online self-questionnaires sent by e-mail to the GPs included, before and after use of the tool. Results: A total of 28 GPs were included. Seventy-five percent considered the use of the tool feasible and 42.85% were willing to use the tool again in the future. Satisfaction with the use of the tool was 78.6%. After using the tool, 60.7% of GPs improved their score on the knowledge test. Obstacles to the use of the tool were reported by 57.14% of the GPs, mainly the time-consuming nature of the tool and the difficulty of discussing sexuality. Conclusion: The tool evaluated seems to have aroused the interest of the GPs, with a desire to use it again in their daily practice in the future. It has improved GPs' knowledge of STIs.
