In 2002 and 2013, FDA surveyed healthcare professionals (HCPs) about their attitudes toward Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) advertising and its role in their relationships with their patients. The 2013 survey included multiple types of HCPs: primary care physicians and specialists, as well as nurse practitioners and physician assistants. Whereas the focus of both previous FDA surveys was on DTC advertising and promotion, the current study is designed to address issues related to professional prescription drug promotion. The goal is to query a representative sample of HCPs about their opinions of promotional materials and procedures targeted at HCPs, clinical trial design and knowledge, and FDA approval status. We will also take this opportunity to ask HCPs briefly about their knowledge of abuse-deterrent formulations for opioid products. We proposed to conduct a nationally representative survey of approximately 1,240 physicians (primary care and specialists), nurse practitioners, and physician assistants, drawn from WebMD’s subscriber network. The survey, assessed via Internet, is expected to take 15-20 minutes. Analyses will include frequencies, Chi-square, and correlational and factor analysis. The proposed survey is designed to provide further insights about how professionally targeted prescription drug promotion might influence health care professionals’ decision-making processes and practices and how information may be communicated more accurately.
