An interactive decision tool for preventive health-check activities in general practice

This is a three-year project commencing in 2006 and funded by the NSW Cancer Council to develop a ‘meta-decision aid’ for prioritising preventive health activities in general practice. It seeks to use the RACGP ‘Red Book’ guidelines for this purpose and includes a randomised controlled trial and qualitative exploration of consultation processes. This project is also part of the Oxford-Sydney Collaboration for evidence-based cancer prevention activities in general practice’ with some funding from NSW Cancer Institute.
