Description of work
a) Survey among professionals: In this survey we will assess the attitude and experience with programs for selective prevention among primary care physicians in each of the five participating EU countries (SWE, DNK, NLD, CZE, GRE). The aim of this survey is to get an overview of key determinants of success, of potential obstacles and to identify cultural or system factors that need to be taken into account when tailoring selective prevention programs. These factors will finally be included in the tool box.
b) Population survey: This survey aims at identifying the attitude of the general population in the countries represented in the SPIMEU project towards prevention and determinants of successful participation. We specifically aim to identify social and cultural factors, and factors related to the health care system that need to be taken into account when implementing a selective prevention program in that specific country.
