Abstract

BackgroundIn Europe, a comparable scope of training in GP can be observed especially in the field of knowledge. This feasibility study determines if a knowledge test is suitable in the context of a neighboring country.

MethodsA Dutch knowledge multiple choice test was used after validation of its content in Flanders Belgium in the academic year 2010–2011. Satisfaction with the test format was assessed. The test was taken by general practice trainees and trainers. Group scores of trainees in year 1, 2 and 3 and their trainers were compared to Dutch participants as a control group.

Results80 percent of the items in the Dutch test were transferable to Flanders Belgium. Flemish participants Belgium liked the test format. The scores of all Belgian participants groups were lower than the Dutch participants.

ConclusionThe results among 1278 participants show that the use of the Dutch knowledge multiple-choice test is feasible in a neighboring country. At present, the individual scores can not be used for high stake decisions for trainees in Flanders Belgium. If countries collaborate in the area of assessing GPs trainees, there would be an economical benefit due to increased efficiency. It would also lead to greater international integration of the discipline.
