||Zoonoses and the physicians' role in educating farming patients
||July-Sep. 2009, Vol.14, No.3, p.306-311. 12 ref.
||The purpose of this study was to characterize physicians' knowledge of zoonoses and their perceived role in zoonoses education among their farming patients in Northeast Ohio. In 2006, 92 practicing physicians participated in a self-administered anonymous questionnaire. The survey demonstrated that over 50% of physicians were either mostly uncomfortable or strongly uncomfortable with their knowledge of zoonoses and in their ability to diagnose zoonoses and make recommendations on how to prevent zoonotic infections. Implications of these findings are discussed.
