Physician-reported End-of-life Decision Preferences Survey

Dear Colleague, 

The Medical Association of Georgia is collaborating with universities and physician organizations across Europe, North America and Australia on a research study entitled “Physician Reported End-of-life Decision Preferences: a multinational cross-sectional survey study” (PROPEL).  We are seeking input from: general practitioners, cardiologists, gastroenterologists, geriatricians, intensive care, oncologists, nephrologists, neurologists, gynecologists, pulmonologists, and palliative care physicians.       

The aim of the study is to gain insights: 

– into physicians’ personal preferences related to end-of-life decisions  
– into the influences on those preferences 
– into the connection between personal preferences and clinical practice

We would like to invite you to take part in this study by completing an online questionnaire.

Your participation in this study is highly important to achieve meaningful scientific results. Participation in can be completed through the link below. It will take approximately 10-15 minutes and can be started then finished later.
