Physician-Public Report (P-PR) Survey

AHRQ's Public Report Surveys are designed to provide developers of Web-based public reports with information on how well their reports are meeting consumers' needs, and thereby inform redesign considerations. The primary aim of the surveys is to provide information on consumers' use and perceptions of any given public report Web site, but they also track views of other groups of people who visit a particular Web site. This survey focuses on physician reports.

AHRQ's Public Report Surveys are designed to provide developers of Web-based public reports with information on how well their reports are meeting consumers' needs, and thereby inform redesign considerations. The primary aim of the surveys is to provide information on consumers' use and perceptions of any given public report Web site, but they also track views of other groups of people who visit a particular Web site. This survey focuses on physician reports.


**Survey formatting notes:

  • Survey directions are in blue (i.e., anything blue is not visible in survey).
  • "Page x" refers to a new survey page.
  • Survey Pages 1 and 2 appear for all respondents. After Page 2, the survey branches to separate question sets for each Persona on Page 1. The answer to "What best describes you?" on Page 1 determines which question set is presented to the respondent. In the document below, each Persona-specific question set starts with a new header and new document page.
  • For Patients (including Health Care Professionals who indicate that they are "Choosing a @@0000 for myself") and Friend or Family Members, survey software can be programmed to show a subset of survey pages. For example, survey software can be programmed to show only three of the five question topics (Purpose of Visit, Topics of Interest, Using the Web site, What would you like added or changed, Demographic questions) and can be programmed to choose which three to show at random.
  • Piping-in: The answer to Item on Page 2 is used throughout the rest of the survey wherever @@0000 appears.
