Abstract

The Johns Hopkins Oncology Center, Baltimore, has carried out a pilot study of a method of data collection and analysis to be used for planning and evaluation of continuing education programs conducted in the Maryland region. This study includes definition of techniques used to prepare a test instrument that will accurately reflect actual medical practice within a hospital. The system has been field tested in three diseases, cancer of the lung, breast, and uterine cervix, in two Maryland hospitals. The system appears to be an efficient and inexpensive method for definition of decision making in specific clinical settings and for measurement of change if serial reassessment is instituted.
