A hard copy of the survey was distributed to two Primary Care Centers which are Yarmook and Khashim alaâ��an. Results:Most of the physicians and nurses had a good knowledge of OVA utilization (89.5), although nurses were more likely than physicians to have good knowledge (94 vs. 53.6) and to have a better practice level of the OVA system (82.1 vs. 52.4). In another point, physicians were more likely to have negative attitude toward the OVA system than nurses (71.4 vs.42.9). A significant difference emerged between physiciansâ�� and nursesâ�� KAP toward the OVA reporting system and nationality, language, and working site as revealed by the results.
