Melissa Partin, Minnesota VA Hospital
The Minnesota Veterans Association is trying to determine whether a free medical reference manual provided to veterans receiving medical services in 1999 from VA physicians is being used prior to physician visits. Investigators would like to know how frequently the reference manual is being used (if at all), how it is being used, along with the ease of use (e.g., are certain sections of the manual under or over-utilized, etc.). 200 Veterans will be called in October; the phone interview should last approximately 5 minutes.
