Virtual care survey by the Department of Family Medicine at Western University

During the COVID-19 pandemic, family physicians are being directed by WHO to reduce face-to-face contact with patients for infection control purposes, and instead are completing several of their usual healthcare visits using technology and virtual care methods (text, email, video conferencing, phone audio). Each family physician has their own comfort and knowledge level with virtual healthcare and the knowledge gaps in using virtual care are currently unknown, since there is no standard training for physicians in continuing professional development or during the completion of their family physician doctorate training.

With responses from the survey deployed to family physicians, the study team led by Western University’s Department of Family Medicine will determine the knowledge gaps in currently practicing family physicians, which will help determine the continuing professional development needs of physicians in improving their ability to provide care through virtual healthcare techniques. Please note this is not an SGFP or OMA study.

To access this survey:
  • login to your OMA Members website
