Brief Summary:
Very few studies are dealing with the way general practitioners feel the death of their patients. Main studies about that subject are qualitative. It needs quantitative studies to analyse how is felt general practitioners' patients' death. This is an epidemiologic quantitative cross-sectional study. The Studied population is the whole of the general practitioners of the region Nouvelle-Aquitaine. The primary endpoint is the percentage of the general practitioners which have hard time living with their patients' death. The secondary endpoints are to evaluate the general practitioners' help needing after their patients' death, to evaluate the personal and professional impact of the patient's death, the percentage of general practitioners using chemical aid after their patients' death and to determinate the existence of support facilities to help general practitioners to stand patients' death. The results of that study could help general practitioners to improve their medical practice in the patient's death situation.
