Letter with Questionnaire
The National Academies has been contracted by the National Institute of Occupational Science and Health (NIOSH) to conduct a review of its occupational respiratory disease activities.
As a part of this review the committee would like to give stakeholders an opportunity to comment on NIOSH’s occupational respiratory disease activities and related products. The information that we receive from you will greatly help us in our review. Your responses are received anonymously, but the answers that are given will be made a part of public record.
We ask that you please take a moment to comment by clicking on the link below. http://www8.nationalacademies.org/survey/dels/niosh/niosh.htm
If you have any questions, please feel free to give myself or the staff officer on this study (K. John Holmes at 202-334-2045) a call or e-mail message. We would appreciate receiving responses by March 20th, but can accept responses up to May 1st. We appreciate your time in helping us with our task.
Question 2: What kind of experiences have you had working with the agency or its products?
Respondent 1: I am familiar with NIOSH’s support of state-based surveillance activities for respiratory disease.
Respondent 2: Good except there could be more interaction between intramural staff and state surveillance programs with cooperative agreements to better target and use limited resources. Now only one person from NIOSH respiratory works with the states and other intramural people, and states do not coordinate activity even when they may be working on same specific respiratory issues
Respondent 3: As a CDC employee dealing with infection control matters for health care personnel, I have had to become somewhat familiar with respiratory protection for this occupational group. I have served on an informal CDC
