Table 2 Summary of the case vignette

From: Development and pilot testing of a tool to assess evidence-based practice skills among French general practitioners

A 75-years-old man visits his general practitioner. In his medical history: an ischemic stroke 2 years before, atrial fibrillation, smoking, hypertension, and hypercholesterolemia. He was worried by a risk of epilepsy because of his stroke; asked if his use of coffee was excessive; asked to refill his prescription (with no anticoagulant but aspirin); and complained about a calf pain (without any deep vein thrombosis sign).
