Partners: University of Newcastle and University of NSW
Principal researchers: Dr Jane Robertson, Dr David Newby and Dr Sallie-Anne Pearson
This project began in 2006 and aims to:
- Understand factors influencing clinicians’ decisions to access and use evidence-based drug information and decision support in paper and electronic format.
- Identify interventions that improve access and uptake of evidence-based drug information by clinicians, made available in paper or electronic form.
- Pilot test interventions to improve uptake of evidence-based drug information using information communication and technologies.
