Background: The need for family doctor registration programs (FDRPs) is constantly rising in order to reinforce primary healthcare. This study involved a questionnaire for healthcare workers to survey their recognition of FDRPs.
Methods: In total, 315 healthcare workers were surveyed using structured self-reporting questionnaires from October 2016 to December 2016. The questionnaire was designed to survey the respondents on the following areas: general characteristics, registration of FDRPs, and the influence of FDRPs.
Results: About 69.8% of respondents replied that they would enroll in an FDRP. In addition, the respondents showed a generally positive assessment of the impact of FDRPs on the healthcare system.
Conclusion: Additional studies should be designed in order to strengthen the positioning of clinics and to provide solutions against negative opinions about FDRPs.
