GP Journal Club – Sunday 20th March 2016 at 20:00 GMT

BJGP Blog

The British Journal of General Practice is an international journal publishing research, debate and analysis, and clinical guidance for family practitioners and primary care researchers worldwide. The BJGP Blog brings opinion to research and clinical practice.

The next GP Journal Club will be discussing the BJGP paper:

Telephone triage systems in UK general practice: analysis of consultation duration during the index day in a pragmatic randomised controlled trial by Holt et al. 

You can download it here.

Suggested questions include:

1) What do you think of the selection of consultation duration as the outcome?
2) Any thoughts on the study design?
3) Does the fact that only same-day consultations are triaged change the results?
4) Are the data collection methods reliable?
5) Has this paper changed your views on phone triage?

Feel free to suggest questions – via Twitter or leave them in the comments box below.
