Abstract

Background and purpose: We evaluated awareness of general practitioners (GP) of Mazandaran province to diagnosis, management and prevention of cholera Materials and methods: In a prospective study, 156 GPs answered to a questionnaire containing 15 questions in a face to face Interview. Sampling was randomly. Results: Sixty eight (43.6) were female and 88 (56.4) were male. The mean age of male was 42±7.8 years and female was 40±5.8 years. In total, awareness level of GPs about cholera was moderate in 89 (57.1) and good in 48(30.8). The awareness about diagnosis of cholera was good, moderate and poor in 23, 69.9 and 7.1, respectively. Also 17.3, 71.8 and 10.9 of GPs had a good, moderate and poor (respectively) awareness of treatment. The awareness level of GPs about prevention of cholera was good, moderate and poor in 26.3, 59 and 14.7, respectively Conclusion: Given the moderate level of awareness of GPs about cholera, raises the need for more planning for control of epidemic.
