Medical Information Seeking Patterns of US Practicing Psychiatrists

Feb 28, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/2dzns6/medical) has announced the addition of the "Medical Information Seeking Patterns of US Practicing Psychiatrists" report to their offering.


Understanding the current medical information-seeking patterns of clinicians is critical in making decisions about continuing healthcare education and medical information design and support. CE Outcomes, LLC developed and implemented a survey instrument to investigate the medical information-seeking patterns and preferences of USpracticing healthcare providers.

The survey instrument was distributed by email and fax during August and September 2010 to a random stratified sample of US-practicing psychiatrists. A sample of 147 psychiatrists was collected and analyzed to understand the preferences and patterns for each group with regards to seeking medical information.

Knowing how and from which sources healthcare providers seek medical information, and how they integrate medical information into their practices, provides opportunities to better understand how to facilitate medical information through education and structured messages. These data are intended for use by providers and supporters of continuing healthcare education in strategic planning and design of their programs with the overall goal of improving patient care. The following report outlines the specific data regarding medical information-seeking patterns and preferences, as well as a summary of implications on these data to design and implement medical information and educational messages to psychiatrists.

Information regarding the following items are included in this report: - The types of questions that are most often encountered by psychiatrists.

- Patterns of psychiatrists for online information seeking.

- Psychiatrists use of emerging technologies sto stay up to date.

- Preferred formats for receiving medical information.

- Barriers of psychiatrists to finding needed medical information.

- Psychiatrists participation in CME activities.

- Perceptions of educational formats and information from pharmaceutical sales representatives.

- Implications for the support and design of medical information and education for psychiatrists.
