Patients followed in Internal Medicine department bring together favorable conditions for the use of alternative medicines. While some are recognized for their benefits, some can, on the contrary, harm the patient. It is therefore proposed to make a complete descriptive inventory of these practices, through an anonymized questionnaire. The main objective is the evaluation of the proportion of the use of alternative medicines in patients with autoimmune diseases in the department of Internal Medicine .
At all times alternative medicine has existed. Internal Medicine deals with rare autoimmune diseases, of which there is not always a cure. Even when the treatment is optimal, there are often subjective complaints.Patients followed in Internal Medicine therefore have favorable conditions for the use of alternative medicines. While some are recognized for their benefits, some can, on the contrary, harm the patient. It is therefore proposed to make a complete descriptive inventory of these practices, through an anonymized questionnaire. This information will make it possible to target the patient's needs, and to be able to offer alternative medicines that are better focused, without calling into question their conventional treatment
