Education in the Medical Care Setting: Perceptions of Selected Physicians.
Sutherland, Mary S.
Perceptions of selected physicians at Fort Sanders Presbyterian Hospital, Knoxville, Tennesee, were assessed regarding the status of education in the medical care setting. The questionnaire administered to 17 physicians gathered information related to their perceptions considering (1) the need for hospital-based patient teaching programs, (2) physicians' approval for educational activities, (3) printed instructional booklets for education, (4) responsibility for patient teaching, (5) kinds and types of educational programs, (6) patient referral for education, and (7) feasibility of an educational laboratory. Following the brief narrative section, all data gathered from the respondents are presented. For each of the eight questions this information is provided: number responding, answers, and number and percent which chose each answer. A table reports the kinds and types of patient education programs physicians would like to see developed and implemented. (YLB)
