Brief description The case for a shift to evidence-based practice, and the substantial economic and health outcome benefits of that shift, have been repeatedly made. Despite the vision, significant barriers to evidence-based practice remain, and the demonstration of a positive role for on-line systems would result in a significant change in strategies for clinician behaviour change. This study will make a specific and significant contribution to our understanding of the efficacy and effectiveness of online evidence retrieval systems as a component in any evidence-based strategy, through a rigorous and controlled approach to the study of clinical behaviour change. It will also provide a powerful test of the value of search filters as a specific technology in support of evidence retrieval. The focus on prescribing patterns in NHMRC priority areas as an outcome measure will also provide a significant data set reflecting current practice in primary care.
