A Flinders University PhD research study is seeking to interview Australian general practitioners (15-30 mins) on their experiences of managing patients with multimorbidity.

This project will investigate general practitioner (GP) perspectives of managing patients with multiple chronic conditions, especially when one condition is life-limiting. It will also ask GPs about the suitability of the available research evidence for multimorbidity and what GPs believe is needed to better support them in providing this care.

What is involved

GPs will participate in a single confidential interview lasting 15-30 minutes. Interviewees will be personally reimbursed for their time in line with the Schedule fee ($150).

Participant benefits: In sharing your experiences, you will contribute to a clearer picture of how Australian general practitioners are dealing with what is understood to be a growing concern for health systems worldwide. It will be an opportunity to express your opinions on what needs to happen to improve the experience of providing care for patients with more complicated needs.
