CONTI CUESTA, Francisco; BAENA PAREJO, María Isabel  y  PINZON PULIDO, Sandra Arlette. Opinion of the primary care veterinarians of Andalusia regarding the management of their professional practice. Rev. Esp. Salud Publica [online]. 1999, vol.73, n.5, pp.563-576. ISSN 2173-9110.

BACKGROUND: This study describes the opinion of the veterinarians in Andalusia regarding the organization and management of their professional practice and pinpoints solutions to the problems found for the purpose of providing planning and management aspects in view of the reforms undertaken in the Andalusian Health Service Strategy Plan. METHOD: Descriptive opinion poll employing a questionnaire filled out by each individual among all of the Primary Care (PC) veterinarians in Andalusia (including those who have been currently employed who possess at least one year’s experience, except substitutes). A description was provided of their personal traits, their opinion of the management-related factors involved in their professional practice. A description was also provided of the suggestions for improving the problems found to exist. RESULTS: Over 70% said they were aware of the objectives, although only the coordinators found them to be clearly motivating the practice. Their opinion was that the indictors of activity neither include any quality-related criteria nor afford the possibility of evaluating the activity they are carrying out. They believed that the contributions from other members of the multidisciplinary team improve their work and are in favor of continuing their involvement therein. They were satisfied with doing their work (the coordinators to a greater degree). They found the productivity pay to be too low and not useful as regards providing them with any incentive. They were not satisfied with the training with which they are provided and thought that what they are offered is far less than their other colleagues in the health care field. Most were of the opinion that they should remain under the authority of the Andalusian Health Service. CONCLUSIONS: This group prefers to continue working for the same organization, but improving the following management aspects: training offer, practice incentives and activity indicators.
