Webinar: The 2012 International Survey of Primary Care Physicians

The Commonwealth Fund hosted a webinar on February 5, 2013 to discuss findings from the latest International Health Policy Survey of Primary Care Physicians. Published in November, the survey, conducted in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Switzerland, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States, looked at such issues as patient access, health information technology, communication, overall views of the health system, and job satisfaction.

A free 90-minute webinar sponsored by The Commonwealth Fund examined key survey findings, with commentary and perspective provided by respondents from England, Switzerland, and the Netherlands. The Fund's Robin Osborn, vice president and director of the International Program in Health Policy and Innovation, moderated.
