Can Preventive Care Activities In General Practice Be Sustained When Financial Incentives And External Audit Plus Feedback Are Removed?
Grant number: 1063597 | Funding period: 2014 - 2017
There is increasing debate about the effectiveness of incentive payments and audit plus feedback on the clinical behaviour of general practitioners (GPs). Governments both in Australia and the UK are raising the threshold targets for payment eligibility making it more difficult for GPs to get payments. We will conduct a trial that will investigate the impact of removing financial incentives and/or external audit plus feedback on the preventive care activities of GPs.
