To develop and evaluate a new model of continuing medical education (CME) for general practitioners (GPs).
The study is part of the joint European Drug Education Project (DEP).
This paper presents the Swedish part regarding the design of the evaluation study, the educational methodology, and the participants'evaluation.
An educational model was developed.
Two peer group discussions (facilitated by a GP/pharmacist team), including individual feedback on the GPs'judgments of written simulated cases and prescribing, were main components.
The model was tested in a parallel randomized controlled study including 36 GP groups, allocated to education on asthma or urinary tract infections.
Background and outcome data were knowledge and attitudes (K/A) assessed by a questionnaire and prescribing practices for actual and written simulated cases.
The GPs'evaluation of the model was captured through a questionnaire.
