Résumé : Beyond its scientific and ethical competencies, a good doctor is characterized by his communication skills. The ability to listen is fundamental. During an interview, the physician must keep in mind a bio-psycho-social approach while being able to hear the unspeakable and inaudible. Knowledge of patients and their relatives, which seems to be a specific knowledge for general practitioners, offers a lot of information. Among the main sensitive topics that the clinician must identify are: Intrafamily violence, domestic violence, substance abuse and anxiety-depressive disorders. In order to improve, the practitioner can use tools such as the Calgary-Cambridge guide and techniques used in Motivational Maintenance.
