Seeking GPs for online survey on GP-EP referral pathways

Francis Ali Albert, a PhD candidate with the College of Medicine and Dentistry at James Cook University in Townsville is seeking GPs to participate in an online survey for a research project titled Enhancing physical activity: exploring referral pathways between GPs and EPs.

The research focuses on enhancing physical activity by exploring the perceptions of general practitioners (GPs), exercise physiologists (EPs) and their patients in relation to the outcomes of referral pathways.

The findings from this study will help advance knowledge on the barriers and facilitators to GP-EP relationships and enhance their inter-professional collaboration. This will ultimately aid better understanding of how to improve the referral pathways between GPs and EPs, reduce the burden of work placed on GPs and enhance the health outcome of patients with chronic diseases. Participants qualify for a draw to win one of five $200 gift vouchers.
