The questionnaire used for the health policy survey was tested, discussed and revised by all network partners until a common understanding of the objectives, methodology, and the terms used had been reached.

The questionnaire consists of six parts:

  1. Content of policy or idea. A summary description of the main objectives, incentives, and groups affected
  2. Economic and social background of policy. Pressures and driving forces, influences from abroad, financing or quality concerns.
  3. Policy process. A detailed analysis of actors and influences at each stage of the policy development.
  4. Expected outcome. Expert opinion regarding the likely results of a policy compared to its objectives, or regarding the feasibility of an innovative idea or approach.
  5. Review mechanisms and their outcome
  6. Ratings of policy. Expert asssement of policy or idea in terms of innovation, impact, controversy, public visibility and transferability.
