Seventy learners (47 FPs and 23 general medicine residents) were included in the face-to-face training group and 61 (33 FPs and 28 general medicine residents) in the e-learning group. The pre- and post-test scores were significantly improved in the FP group (difference of 29.3 ± 1.9 [P < 0.0001] out of 100) as well as in the general medicine resident group (difference of 38.2 ± 2.7 [P < 0.0001] out of 100). E-learning was more effective than face-to-face training, particularly among general medicine residents (progression of mean difference of 44.3 ± 3.4/100 vs. 30.9 ± 4.0/100; P = 0.0138) and to a lesser extent among FPs (progression of 25.3 ± 2.3/100 vs. 31.9 ± 2.7/100; P = 0.0757). Forty-six script concordance tests were completed by FPs and 20 by general medicine residents. Script concordance test results did not seem significant between the subgroups.
