Project Details

Layman's description

A European cross-sectional survey of family doctors that identifies important health system factors that influence primary care practitioners' (PCPs') referrals for cancer suspicion.

Key findings

We have identified five factors that underly PCPs' referral decision-making; degree of direct patient access to secondary care; PCPs' perceptions of being under pressure; expectations of PCP's role; and extent to which PCPs believe that quality comes before cost in their health systems.
