Abstract

The Internet and computers have brought immense change in how society deals with information. Uptake of these technologies has been disjointed and has occurred in a non-uniform way among general practitioners, compared with other professionals. Information mastery is a key 21st century skill that GPs should acquire. Applying "change management" concepts may help improve uptake of information mastery skills in general practice.
