Résumé

Introduction. - A study on lung cancer screening using low-dose computed tomography (DEP KP80) was conducted in the Somme department in northern France between May 2016 and December 2018. We conducted a cross-sectional survey of family physicians in that department to identify potential predictive factors for their participation in this pilot study. Methods. - A survey questionnaire was sent to the 545 general practitioners (GPs) of the Somme department. This survey rendered it possible to identify the investigators who were active in the DEP KP80 study. The questionnaire's content was focused on the socio-demographic conditions of GPs, their professional practices, and their medical practice situations. Results. - The response rate was 38% (206 completed questionnaires). Active investigators in DEP KP80 accounted for 55% (n=113) of the GPs surveyed, and non-investigators for 45% (n=93). Age, gender, or medical practice situation were not related to the active GPs' participation in DEP KP80. A multivariate analysis revealed that two factors were correlated with active participation in organized screening: (1) prescription of nicotine replacement therapy; (2) smoking history of the GP. Conclusions. - Securing the active involvement of family physicians and of the French regional cancer screening coordination centers seems essential for the future organization of lung cancer screening on a regional or national level. Our results demonstrate that incorporating smoking cessation support structures into the program would maximize the mechanism's potential.
