This paper is concerned with the place and role of general practitioners in the follow-up of patients submitted to bariatric surgery in the province of Liège. The results of the analysis were compared with clinical practice guidelines published by the French Haute Autorité de Santé (HAS). Fifteen interviews were conducted with GPs who follow up operated patients. The results highlight the GPs’ wish to fully participate in the follow-up of those patients. Their medical supervision is centered on the HAS clinical practice guidelines, taking into account the intake deficiencies as well as the patient’s psychological experience. However, some aspects are disregarded, mainly because of a lack of theoretical knowledge (some biological parameters, pregnancy and contraception). The short consultation time along with the poor communication with the hospital multidisciplinary team were mentioned as obstacles to a good quality follow-up. Progress is still needed to reach the clinical practice guidelines. However, there is a wish to better collaborate. Organising coordination meetings between professionals along with an early implication of the GP – even before surgery – represent possible solutions. [less ▲]

Background: Unjustified modifications of the patient’s usual medication during his hospitalisation induce various problems for the patient (confusion, additional costs) and for healthcare professionals (work overload, additional cost). The principle of favouring dialogue between local actors to reach commonly accepted solutions (KCE, 2010) was used in the current study. Research question: Which local strategies could be implemented to improve continuity of drug therapy when the patient moves to hospital or back home? Method: The study took place in Liège (Wallonia). Participants were recruited within four professional groups: general practitioners, hospital specialists, pharmacists and hospital stakeholders. First, a nominal group was carried out for each professional group. Prioritized suggestions were obtained. In a second phase, Delphi method was used. Suggestions from the nominal group were submitted to representatives of each profession (a total of 40) to evaluate relevance, acceptability and feasibility of each one. Results: A total of 101 suggestions were evoked in the first phase. They were related to two main themes: implication of well-defined actors and development of specific means. Five consensual suggestions emerged from the Delphi process: provision by the general practitioner of a complete list of medication on hospital admission; provision by the hospital specialist of a list of drugs at discharge; development of formal hospital processes to keep the patient’s usual medication; centralisation of medication data; development and use of a unique medical record. Conclusion: A link medium handled by the patient when he moves to the hospital and back home is the major idea mentioned and accepted by local actors. [less ▲]
