The traditional identification of physicians as either clinician or researcher is challenged by the emergence of randomised clinical trials (RCTs) where research and clinical care are performed simultaneously.
A mail survey using a self-administered questionnaire, the Physician Orientation Profile, was conducted of 101 physicians from the Collaborative Ocular Melanoma Study (COMS), a set of trials which compares surgical removal of the eye with radiation in the treatment of medium sized eye cancers.
A 95% response rate was obtained; follow-up telephone interviews were conducted with 87% of respondents.
