Careful planning is the key

Conducting studies in the GP sector can be fraught with difficulties with many hidden challenges. We have extensive experience in running studies with GPs from longitudinal studies in small patient numbers to large cross-sectional surveys in several thousand patients involving all GPs from around Australia. Through this experience we understand how to obtain valuable information through careful design and upfront planning. At Statistical Revelations we have been involved in devising sampling plans, designing and validating questionnaires and analysis of small and large scale surveys.
