    Vote for and comment on PiF’s draft principles and guidelines for creating accurate information

    Over the last 6 months PiF has consulted with a wide range of information producers to identify the principles and associated best practice that will help everyone to create information that works. You can read full details about the consultation process here: www.pifonline.org.uk

    In this next stage of the project we are asking PiF members to comment on the principles and best practice that were identified during the consultation, and tell us whether you agree or disagree with them. We would also like you to tell us what sort of resources you would like us to create, to best support information producers to follow the guidance and put the main principles into practice.

    This first survey focuses on the principles and guidance associated with ensuring health information is accurate. Two further surveys over the next few weeks will look at readability and relevance/impact.

    Please also note that the consultation process identified three other areas of practice where guidelines were felt to be needed: working with and involving users, evaluating information and it’s impact and developing different formats. We will be developing guidance on these areas too, and will give you an opportunity to contribute to shaping these in the future, so bear this in mind when you’re responding to this survey.

    The survey is currently open to PiF members only. It should take you no more than 15 minutes to complete the survey, though you might want more time to think about and reflect on the principles. You can leave the survey and come back to it.

    Your input and comments are a vitally important part of shaping the guidance – these are expert guidelines after all!
