Seventy-two physicians working in a university hospital in The Netherlands were interviewed to clarify their decision-making process when choosing drugs of preference.
Each physician was questioned about the treatment choices for either one or two general case descriptions.
The physicians considered only a limited set of different treatment options, on an average 1.7-5.0. Further, the physicians expressed their expectancies as regards various treatment alternatives, and the value or weight they attached to the principle aspects of a treatment.
An analytical decision model was used as a reference to gain insight into the extent to which the physicians make decisions based on their own subjective expectancies and values.
