Resources and tools

We have developed resources and tools to support GPs in clinical practice and for use in primary care research.

Alt-Con Guidance is a suite of information to help general practices think through key issues before implementing alternatives to face-to-face consultations with patients, such as email, telephone, video and online consultations.

The Continuity of Care Calculator is designed to allow general practices to audit the levels of continuity of patient care provided in their practice.

Eczema resources:

  • The Eczema Written Action Plan (EWAP) is designed to help parents of children with eczema manage the condition at home. It is available for GPs to download and use in routine clinical care.
  • The Moisturiser Decision Aid‌ is a two-sided document, which can be used by parents, older children with eczema or health care professionals, to help decide which moisturisers to used to treat eczema.

Modular Resource-Use Measure (ModRUM) - ModRUM is a generic, modular resource-use measure designed for collecting self-report resource utilisation data.

The Multimorbidity Treatment Burden Questionnaire (MTBQ) is a 10-item questionnaire designed to measure treatment burden (the effort of looking after one’s health) in patients with multimorbidity (multiple long-term conditions) in primary care. 

One in a Million is an archive of high quality video recordings, plus survey and electronic patient records data, with permissions in place for reuse by bona fide researchers and for medical and research training purposes.

The Patient-Doctor Depth of Relationship (PDDR) scale is an eight-item, patient self-completed questionnaire designed to measure patient-doctor relational depth. It provides a score specific to the index doctor, rather than relationships in general.

The Primary Care Outcomes Questionnaire (PCOQ) is a 24-item, patient-reported outcome measure designed to measure outcomes in primary care. It is scored in four domains, and is applicable to adult patients attending primary care with any problem.

Remote consultations workload calculator. This calculator allows you to model the impact of online first, telephone first or video first approaches on GP workload.

The Safety-netting Tool (SaNCoT) is an Excel-based coding scheme which allows for the recording of how GPs communicate safety-netting advice and other safety-netting activities, such as discussing diagnostic uncertainty and the expected time-course of an illness.

The Short Questionnaire for Out-of-Hours Care (SQOC) is a short, validated questionnaire to assess patients' satisfaction with out-of-hours services in primary care.
