Abstract

Many general practitioners/family doctors are concerned about the impact that using a computer will have on their relationships with their patients. Questions remain about the optimal ways to use a computer during a consultation in primary medical care without having the technology get in the way of the doctor-patient communication necessary for quality clinical care. The education, training and support needs of clinicians have often been neglected in the process of clinical computerisation.
