  e-learning module Site visits B&F survey
Respondents accessed • Reached the largest number of participants across the widest geographic area • Reached fewer practitioners, but of a similar scope in terms of roles within health care • Most limited in terms of ‘other’ non-physician and non-nurse respondents
Barriers • Most restricted breadth of fears listed

• Insufficient knowledge most often identified in respondent
Facilitators -* • Institutional-level most cited, followed by social-level • Institutional-level most cited, followed by individual-level
Knowledge needed • Greatest number of responses calling for further research • Information on administration cited most often • Least amount of information provided
Method • One-way • Two-way • One-way
Approximate cost • $10,000 • $17,500 (total) or $1750 per visit† • Negligible (assumption)†
  1. B&F (Barriers and Facilitators)
  2. * Facilitators were not included in the e-learning module format which was developed first
  3. † As academic health care centre employees, salaries were considered to cover educational activities such as for MAG-CP. Site visit costs were based on travel expenses
