Effectiveness of Case-based On-line Learning of Evidence-based Practice Guidelines - American Board of Medical Specialties

This study explored the effectiveness of electronic case-based education on family physician knowledge, behavior and quality of practice. The intervention involved two evidence-based cases and an online discussion. Questionnaires, chart audits & standardized patient visits helped determine study outcomes. While the sample size was small, participant assignment into groups was not random and online discussions relied on a single moderator. The study results revealed significant improvement in the intervention group for one of the two cases (in two of the three outcomes that were evaluated for each case). The findings suggest that case-based online discussions may be effective in changing physician knowledge and quality of practice.
