AusPAR user survey background
What is an AusPAR?
Australian Public Assessment Reports (AusPARs) relate to the TGA's pre market assessment of a prescription medicine application. As the TGA receive thousands of applications each year, AusPARs are only prepared in relation to applications for products containing a new active ingredient or for new therapeutic uses or major variations to registered products. AusPARs contain extracts from the TGA's reports that were prepared as part of the registration process and, as such, document the considerations that led to the approval, or otherwise, of an application.
What was the purpose of this survey?
The survey was to help the TGA identify the audience for AusPARs, understand what AusPARs were being used for and determine how useful their content was to external stakeholders.
Who was this survey for?
This survey was for anyone who uses AusPARs including health care professionals, the pharmaceutical industry and consumers. The survey was available online via the AusPAR page on the TGA website.
The survey was open from 2 May 2016 to 31 July 2016.
The survey contained 11 questions of which 3 were optional and 8 mandatory.
