Perceived relevance of consequences of diagnostic labelling: a qualitative exploratory study with general practitioners and consumers

Diagnostic Labelling

We are interested in GPs current practice and how best to communicate to patients about the potential harms and benefits of routine screening for non-cancer health conditions. It requires GPs to participate in an online interview (conducted via Zoom). Interviews will require 30-45 minutes and include open-ended questions and a 15-mintue pre-recorded presentation on evidence from systematic reviews regarding consequences of diagnostic labelling.

GPs will be offered opportunity to discuss their clinical practice and perceptions regarding the consequences of routine screening and diagnostic labelling of asymptomatic, non-cancer health conditions, and the relevance and clinical applicability of review findings to routine screening and possible diagnostic labelling to individuals with mild or low risk thresholds for health conditions.

GPs will receive a $100 gift voucher for their contribution to this research.
