NCHS and the National Institute of Health’s National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) have partnered to develop and test a short questionnaire focused on physician awareness of national and other guidelines on prescribing opioids for pain management. The purpose of this study is threefold: (1) to evaluate survey questions that ask physicians about their knowledge, awareness, and adherence to these guidelines; (2) to assess the feasibility of a nationally-representative panel survey of physicians to gain a better understanding of their practices regarding opioid prescription for pain management; and (3) through a small pilot survey collect data on physician knowledge, awareness, and adherence to guidelines for opioid prescription for pain management. The Associate Fellow will work with NCCIH and other NCHS staff to develop and test this survey questionnaire, implement and conduct the survey, analyze survey data, prepare statistical files and related documentation for release, and prepare written reports and publications.
