General practitioners' perceptions of the route to evidence based medicine: survey questionnaireFirstly, we would like to ask you about your current attitudes towards EBM. Please mark an X on the line corresponding to your opinion or response eg
EXAMPLE - "The world is in danger of a nuclear holocaust"
Strongly Agree ---------------X----------------- Strongly Disagree
1. How would you describe your attitude towards the current promotion of evidence-based medicine?
2. How would you describe the attitude of most of your GP colleagues towards evidence-based medicine?
3. How useful are research findings in your day to day management of patients?
4. What percentage of your clinical practice do you feel is currently evidence-based?
5. Practising evidence-based medicine improves patient care.
6. Evidence-based medicine is of limited value in general oractice because much of primary care lacks a scientific base.
7. The adoption of EBM, however worthwhile as an ideal, places another demand on already overloaded GPs.
One can move from opinion based practice towards evidence based medicine in three very different ways:
a by learning the skills of evidence based medicine ie to identify and appraise the primary literature or systematic reviews oneself; b by seeking and applying evidence based summaries, which give the clinical "bottom line". Such summaries may be obtained from abstracting journals; c by using evidence based practice guidelines or protocols developed by colleagues for use by others.Home | Current issue | Past issues | Classified ads | Career Focus | Feedback
