Summary:

Nowadays, more and more General Practitionners have an office access to the Internet in Western countries. Such an access is used for many tasks such as e-mailing, educational programs, receiving biological results, transmitting Vital cards datas etc.

Many quantitative and fewer qualitative inquiries revealed that French G.P. does not use the Internet for strict primary care purposes, but mainly for other secondary aims such as homeopathy, sports medicine, osteopathy etc. A little of them, however, accordingly to serious surveys, are very involved in this use and are seen as pioneers.

Some of these pioneers are using the Internet during the consultation, but the “how” and the “why” were never studied in France, such as the behavior modifications of either the G.P. and the patients induced by this use. A grounded theory of the use of the Internet by French G.P. during the consultation is once more appropriated for whom desire to explore this behavior, attempting to explore the Basic Social Process if discovered emerging from the theoretical process of the method. In contrast with the plethora of quantitative survey dealing with this subject, a qualitative study to discover “What’s happening here?”, using the Glaserian approach of the Grounded Theory methodology, will enhance the knowledge of behaviors in primary care and provide furtherance for the use of Grounded Theory in primary care research in France.

For awareness scientists :

– Area of research : The Use of the Internet During Consultation by French General Practitionners.

– Method : The Glaserian approach of the Grounded Theory.
