* Correspondance

During our university course and our professional experience in general medicine, we all observed that in many situations our medical care was influenced by various elements, sometimes leading us to go against the recommendations of good practice. These situations seemed to us almost daily in our practice of medicine, whatever the specialty or the place of exercise. We therefore wanted to explore this phenomenon and the factors behind it from the point of view of general practitioners.
