Background:
one of the objectives of The European Review Group on Prevention and Health Promotion in Family Medicine/General Practice (EUROPREV network-http://www.europrev.org) is to promote and encourage multicentre research and educational programs in health promotion and prevention throughout Europe.
Aims of the workshop:
to review the evidence of other studies published in the literature concerning the knowledge and attitudes of GPs in prevention and health promotion.
to describe the methods of the survey: postal survey study, carried out from June to December 2000. A questionnaire was translated and adapted from English to the different languages of 14 countries participating in the survey. It was first pretested and piloted with 10 family physicians/GPs in each country, to see if the questionnaire was fully understandable to them.
to present and discuss the results of the European survey.
Results and conclusions of the workshop:
valuable information about the role of family physicians in prevention and health promotion is expected from the results of this project. Critical issues in prevention and health promotion to be addressed in the future are expected to be raised from the conclusion of the survey.
