Abstract: Educational outreach visits (EOVs) have been defined as a face-to-face visit or educational outreach by a trained health professional.  Previous research by Grimshaw (2004) has reported that EOVs had the highest effects when compared to no interventions for health practitioners.  The primary objective of this review was to evaluate EOVs alone as well as a component of multi-faceted interventions.  Several other factors such as baseline compliance, complexity of behavior, and the number of EOVs, are considered.  51 additional studies were added to this review for a total of 69 included randomized controlled trials (RCT).  This review found that EOVs positively impacted patient care.  Small yet consistent changes were seen in prescription behaviors.
