Additional Findings from the National Surveys of Doctors and Pharmacists

Two Kaiser Family Foundation national surveys of doctors and pharmacists examine additional findings on their views and experiences on a wide range of health care issues. The topics covered in the surveys include views and experiences with medical errors and quality issues, use of health care information technology, prescription drug advertisements, views on Medicaid provisions, doctors’ willingness to see Medicaid and Medicare patients, and physicians’ views of conscience-clause provisions.

The Kaiser Family Foundation National Survey of Physicians and National Survey of Pharmacists were conducted from April through July 2006. Kaiser Family Foundation staff designed and analyzed the survey. The margin of sampling error for the full sample is plus or minus 3 percentage points. Survey findings related to experiences with the Medicare prescription drug benefit were previously released and are available here.
