ASCRS completes third annual Clinical Survey More than 2,000 members responded with clinical opinions and practice patterns to help drive the future of ASCRS education Survey Overview The third annual ASCRS Clinical Survey was performed both at the ASCRS•ASOA Symposium & Congress in San Diego and via electronic follow-up surveys to the ASCRS membership. More than 2,000 physicians responded to this survey, which included 174 questions that created 485 unique measurable data elements. Survey questions were developed and reviewed with the ASCRS Clinical Committees and validated by a social science statistician. The survey asked ASCRS members key questions relating to current issues they face on a regular basis. With 2,047 responses, a significant percentage of the membership was represented, and the results were reviewed and interpreted by the ASCRS Clinical Committees. While many surveys provide important data for our profession, most are not used to drive specific educational efforts aimed at improving the practice of medicine and assessing key clinical opinions. This is the objective behind the annual ASCRS Clinical Survey. In addition to this exclusive overview supplement, please watch for articles in upcoming issues of EyeWorld and the Journal of Cataract & Refractive Surgery that will feature important detailed analysis of this data and commentary on key trends and gaps highlighted in the coming pages.
