The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) takes stakeholder acceptability into consideration when establishing recommendations. To anticipate the potential for changes to the CDC’s ACIP recommendations ahead of a recent update, our client was interested in gaining a better understanding of healthcare provider (HCP) knowledge, attitudes, beliefs, and preferences for potential changes to pneumococcal disease immunization recommendations among adults aged ≥ 65 years.
- We conducted a cross-sectional survey among US HCPs who prescribe and administer pneumococcal vaccine to adults aged ≥ 65 years
- Our researchers applied object-case best-worst scaling to assess HCP preferences among potential recommendation scenarios
- We identified 1,000 HCPs enrolled in a national provider panel who completed the survey
- Our team analyzed and summarized the results of the survey and subsequently published the results
