Abstract

This Note reprints the survey instrument used to collect data from physicians in RAND's evaluation of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Consensus Development Program, a technology assessment and dissemination program aimed at facilitating the timely translation of biomedical research into knowledge that can improve the practice of medicine and public health. The evaluation, sponsored by NIH's Office of Medical Applications of Research, examined the success of NIH's dissemination activities and the effects that NIH consensus conferences have had on physicians' knowledge, attitudes, and practices.
