Abstract

Background: Continuous medical education has been accepted throughout the world as one of the most efficient strategies for up-to dating physicians’ knowledge and information.
Objective: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the efficacy of three held workshops on “The best prescription”.
Methods: Sample consisted of 82 general physicians participating in three held workshops on “The best prescription”. Data collection was done by a questionnaire consisting of two parts of “demographic features” and “the assessment of prescription”. The questionnaire administered before and after the workshops.
Results: From all participants, 49% were female and 44% of subjects had been graduated from Kerman and 9.7% from Rafsanjan Medical Schools. Mean score before workshop was 5.951.4 with the minimum of zero and maximum of 9 and it increased to 7.621.95 with the minimum of zero and maximum of 10 after workshop. In whole there was a significant difference between the mean scores before and after the workshop (P<0.001), but in some respects there was no significant difference (P>0.05).
Conclusion: According to the findings, the held workshops on “the best prescription” have been efficient in increasing participants’ level of information. Therefore continuous medical educational programs along with improving their quality is highly necessary.
