Calling all GPs, hospital clinicians, nurses and 4th year medical students.

Researchers from CSIRO (Australian eHealth Research Centre) and
Queensland University of Technology are conducting a user study to test
a search engine designed to provide clinicians with succinct, accurate
and evidence-based information for clinical decision making.

They need your help to test a new online clinical search system. You will
be asked to respond to a number of clinical scenarios over a 2 hour, online
assessment of the system. This can be performed from your
home/office at a time to suit you, across a 2 week period.
The purpose of the study is to better understand clinician needs and
behaviour whilst resolving a clinical problem, and ultimately to provide a
better system to support improved patient outcomes.

To participate you will require a computer, connected to the internet with
a standard internet browser. Participants completing the assessment will
be compensated with a $50 Gift Card honorarium, access to the study
findings and if desired, relative feedback on their clinical decision making
results within the sample set. The study was approved by QUT’s
University Human Research Ethics Committee (1700000215).
