Results of the 2011 Longitudinal Clinical Peer Review Effectiveness Study were published in the Journal of Healthcare Management. This is the archived version of the original survey landing page. Survey-related links have been removed. The facsimile of the survey in PDF form is still available for review. AHRQ determined in 2015 that survey data cannot be protected as Patient Saftey Work Product under the Federal Patient Safety Act. It has not been necessary to defend against any legal actions demanding data disclosure.


Please answer all questions. We need the highest possible complete response rate to assess variation and minimize bias.

It shouldn't take more than 15 minutes. Data collection has been extended through Monday, January 23.
