A large sample (N = 318) of primary care practices with a total of 470 physicians were randomized to the physician-oriented intervention or to a control group. All physicians completed a baseline survey. Physicians in intervention practices received reminder-feedback materials and educational outreach materials over the course of one year. The reminders were patient-specific forms sent to physicians 60 days after a patient had an abnormal FOBT result. The feedback component was a biannual report of patients who had abnormal FOBT results during the prior 6 months, as well as their CDE status. The educational outreach included two in-office academic detailing visits, a tailored letter, and a telephone call. Physicians in control practices only received reminders during the initial 4 months of intervention.
- CDE recommendation rates were significantly higher for the physicians in the intervention group (79.6%) compared to physicians in the control group (67.3%).
- CDE performance rates were also significantly higher for the physicians in the intervention group (63.3%) compared to physicians in the control group (53.7%).
