Upcoming AHRQ Consumer Survey: ‘Understanding Patients’ Knowledge and Use of Acetaminophen

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) issued a notice in the August 30, 2010 Federal Register announcing a proposed information collection project: “Understanding Patients' Knowledge and Use of Acetaminophen — Phase 2.” This project aims to:
  • Estimate frequency of use, knowledge, and practices regarding use of OTC acetaminophen, and
  • Evaluate potential determinants of misuse in community-based samples.
  • This information will be useful for policy makers to consider and to evaluate regulations and legislation with respect to the distribution, dispensing, and sales of OTC acetaminophen. The public is invited to comment on this proposed information collection by October 29, 2010. See link above for details.
