The Web-based intervention modeling experiment (IME; randomized study in a simulated setting) reported by Treweek et al.  provided support for using IME methodology in the evaluation of interventions to improve quality of care. As well as the management decision made, Treweek et al.'s data on general practitioners' (GPs) responses to scenarios describing uncomplicated upper respiratory tract infection (URTI) included a measure of perceived decision difficulty for each decision and the time taken to make each decision.
