Overview

To determine whether sex/gender, age, risk level and patient preference influence physician decision making to refer patients for cardiac catheterization (CC).

Study Design

Survey- participants blinded to primary objective. Questions were standardized using a five-point Likert scale ranging from 1 (very unlikely to benefit from CC) to 5 (very likely to benefit from CC). Outcomes were assessed using a two-tailed mixed linear regression model.
