Abstract

Background and aimsIBS patients have an impaired quality of life (QoL) and feel dissatisfaction with medical care. We aim to describe the expectations of members of the French Association of IBS patients (APSSII) concerning health care providers (HCPs) and a patients’ organization.Patients and methodsFrom January to June 2013, APSSII members were asked to answer questionnaires on their expectations and experiences concerning IBS and HCP.Results222/330 (67%) responded (women: 68.5%, 46.5 ± 17.7 years, disease duration: 8.8 ± 0.7 years, IBS-D 33.6%, IBS-C 26.7%, IBS-M 38.2%. IBS-SSS > 300 in 53% and HAD score > 19 in 45%). QoL impairment was correlated with disease severity and HAD score (r = −0.707 and r = −0.484, P < 0.001 respectively), but not with IBS subtype. Expectations for IBS were “improved health”, “better information on causes and treatments” (94%) and “better disease recognition” (86%). A significant gap was observed between expectations and experiences with HCPs. Better information, less isolation, recognition of the disease and a decrease in medical expenses were the main expectations for joining a patients’ organization.ConclusionsFrench IBS patients have a severe disease with a significant psychological impact and impaired QoL in half of the patients, certain unsatisfied expectations concerning HCP and high expectations in joining a patients’ organization.
