The methods to be employed include individual indepth interviews, general public focus group interviews, intercept interviews, self-administered surveys, gatekeeper surveys, and professional clinician focus group interviews. The methods to be used serve the narrowly defined need for direct and informal opinion on a specific topic and, as a qualitative research tool, have two major purposes: (1) To obtain information that is useful for developing variables and measures for formulating the basic objectives of risk communication campaigns; and (2) To assess the potential effectiveness of messages and materials in reaching and successfully communicating with their intended audiences. FDA will use these methods to test and refine its ideas and to help develop messages and other communications but will generally conduct further research before making important decisions, such as adopting new policies and allocating or redirecting significant resources to support these policies. FDA will use this mechanism to test messages about regulated drug products on a variety of subjects related to consumer, patient, or health care professional perceptions and about use of drug products and related materials, including but not limited to, direct-toconsumer prescription drug promotion, physician labeling of prescription drugs, Medication Guides, over-the-counter drug labeling, emerging risk communications, patient labeling, online sale of medical products, and consumer and professional education. Annually, FDA projects about 45 communication studies using the variety of test methods listed in this document.

Data To Support Drug Product Communications as Used by the Food and 
Drug Administration--(OMB Control Number 0910-0695)--Extension

    Testing of communication messages in advance of a communication 
campaign provides an important role in improving FDA communications as 
they allow for an in-depth understanding of individuals' attitudes, 
beliefs, motivations, and feelings. The methods to be employed include 
individual in-depth interviews, general public focus group interviews, 
intercept interviews, self-administered surveys, gatekeeper surveys, 
and professional clinician focus group interviews. The methods to be 
used serve the narrowly defined need for direct and informal opinion on 
a specific topic and, as a qualitative research tool, have two major 
purposes:
    (1) To obtain information that is useful for developing variables 
and measures for formulating the basic objectives of risk communication 
campaigns; and
    (2) To assess the potential effectiveness of messages and materials 
in reaching and successfully communicating with their intended 
audiences.
    FDA will use these methods to test and refine its ideas and to help 
develop messages and other communications but will generally conduct 
further research before making important decisions, such as adopting 
new policies and allocating or redirecting significant resources to 
support these policies.
    FDA will use this mechanism to test messages about regulated drug 
products on a variety of subjects related to consumer, patient, or 
health care professional perceptions and about use of drug products and 
related materials, including but not limited to, direct-to-consumer 
prescription drug promotion, physician labeling of prescription drugs, 
Medication Guides, over-the-counter drug labeling, emerging risk 
communications, patient labeling, online sale of medical products, and 
consumer and professional education.
    Annually, FDA projects about 45 communication studies using the 
variety of test methods listed in this document. FDA is requesting this 
burden so as not to restrict the Agency's ability to gather information 
on public sentiment for its proposals in its regulatory and 
communications programs.
    In the Federal Register of April 7, 2014 (79 FR 19096), FDA 
published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed 
collection of information. FDA received one comment; however, this 
comment did not address the information collection.
    FDA estimates the burden of this collection of information as 
follows:
