    ABSTRACT: Objectives To evaluate the satisfaction of difficult to treat patients (DTP) cared for by a primary care team (PCT), as regards the organisational aspects and the care received, and to compare it with that obtained by a sample of the general patient population (GPP). Design Cross-sectional descriptive study. Setting Urban health centre. Participants One hundred-one DTP participated, after being selected using Ellis and O’Dowd criteria by 8 doctors. Method Between March and May 2004 the DTP were given self-administered anonymous questionnaires, prepared and validated by the Catalonian Health Institute, which was divided into 8 sections for their analysis. The results were compared with those obtained in June 2003 from a representative sample from the GPP. Results A total of 52 questionnaires were returned (51% participation), of which 62% were from women, with a mean age of 61.5 (12.3). Average scores (0 to 10) were: organisation 7.2 (1.8) (95% confidence intervale [CI], 6.6-7.7), care by the doctors 8.4 (2.1) (95% CI, 7.7-9), by nurses 7.9 (2.1) (95% CI, 7.3-8.6), by administrators 6.9 (1.9) (95% CI, 6.3-7.4), care resolved 7.2 (2) (95% CI, 6.6-7.9), installations 7.6 (1.7) (95% CI, 7.1-8.1), overall satisfaction 7.5 (1.8) (95% CI, 7-8), and total satisfaction total 7.2 (1.6) (95% CI, 6.8- 7.7). The 91.7% (95% CI, 80-97.7) would recommend their friends to be treated in the centre. All the scores are higher than those in the GPP sample, with no statistical differences in the care by doctors and nurses sections. Conclusions Although the relationships with the DTP are often problematic, the results show a high level of satisfaction within the DTP in all the sections evaluated, even higher than that of the GPP group.

    ABSTRACT: Objective To learn the opinion of Spanish Physical Therapists on the present physical therapy curriculum and future degree program. Material and method Qualitative study by telephone survey. Results 50 physical therapists from different geographic and university origins were polled. A total of 53.1% consider that they did not receive adequate academic training, 60% would include more subjects related to the manual therapy and 46% would increase the credits for subjects such as anatomy, biomechanics and physiology. A total of 94% of the physical therapists consider that the future degree program should include 4 and 5 years and should include the specialization. Conclusions There is a low degree of satisfaction regarding present curriculum with training deficiencies in techniques of manual therapy and insufficient content regarding the subject load for subjects on structure and function of the human body. The feature receiving the highest value by the physical therapists surveyed is practical training. The future degree studies should be carried out in a four year program and include the speciality. Thus, a future review of the curricular development is necessary.
