La boîte de sevrage tabagique: Expérience d'un outil didactique et pédagogique à destination des praticiens

Abstract : A kit for helping the general practitioners in Lorraine to handle smoking cessation: two investigations for evaluating their use of this tool. Tobacco use remains the single most preventable cause of death in France. The French government took steps to develop tobacco control policies and to build capacity for effectiveimplementation.Most of the time general practitioners are the main advisers for handling chronic diseases and among them tobacco addiction.However their training on how to help smokers to quit tobacco use can still be enhance, and and the aids to support their consultations be improved.Having this in mind in 1999, a team of practitioners with AMPPU 54 designed and dispatched an aid called ?The Box for Smoking Cessation? to each and every general practitioner in Lorraine.Within the framework of this thesis, two investigations were led in order to evaluate how this aid was used and how effective it was. These investigations were also an opportunity to gather some fresh information about the practice, the knowledge and the needs of the practitioners for handling tobacco cessation.The practitioners show an increasing awareness to tobacco addiction. The ?Conseil Minimal? is systematically delivered and more than 60 % of the practitioners having answered the surveys state an increase of their monthly tobacco cessation proposals.By these surveys, it appears that this Box has not been and is not generally used.Nevertheless we think that what this team did and the dispatching of such a box was a significant part in making the Lorraine general practitioners more aware of the difficulties of tobacco cessations and the training they would need.
