FDA has planned an integrated public outreach campaign to improve the safe use of online pharmacies for drug purchases. In order to effectively evaluate this campaign, FDA must understand individuals’ knowledge, attitudes, and practices with regard to online pharmacies both at the start of the campaign and on an ongoing basis. This will enable FDA to gauge progress toward educating the public on safely purchasing from online pharmacies. An online survey panel will be employed to collect this information, which serves the need for direct and quantitative measurement of our target population, and which, as a quantitative research tool has some major benefits: • To focus on our target population of adults who use the Internet. • To collect data quickly and efficiently with minimal cost to the government. • To reduce burden to the public by providing a means to complete the survey at a time and place of their choosing. FDA will use online data collection to establish a baseline and evaluate the success of its messages and distribution methods for its outreach campaign, which educates consumers about how to safely purchase drugs online. Additionally, FDA will use this method to help tailor messages and communications vehicles to have both a more powerful and desired impact on target audiences. The data will not be used for the purposes of making policy or regulatory decisions. In the Federal Register of July 12, 2011 (76 FR 40920), FDA published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed collection of information. FDA received no comments. FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as follows: TABLE 1—ESTIMATED ANNUAL REPORTING BURDEN 1 Activity Number of respondents Number of responses per respondent Total annual responses Average burden per response Total hours Survey Study .................................................................. 5,000 1 5,000 .33 (20 min.) 1,650 1 There are no capital costs or operating and maintenance costs associated with this collection of information.
