Discussion Questions for the November 7, 2016 Meeting of the Risk Communication Advisory Committee

These questions ask you to step deliberately through the Strategic Framework, and offer comments and recommendations.

  1. Looking specifically at Risk Communication and Health Literacy at FDA:
    1. Does the Overarching Outcome support Strategic Priority Goal 3?
    2. Do the proposed performance indicators provide meaningful measurement of progress toward the Overarching Outcome?
    3. Can you suggest any other indicators for us to consider?
  2. Consider the four major Contributing Outcomes, which all feed into the Overarching Outcome:
    1. Increased use of clear communication best practices and plain language in developing messages
    2. Increased use of more targeted messages and communications
    3. Improved efficiency of internal operations for writing and developing communications
    4. Improved dissemination of FDA's communications and information
      1. Collectively, do they support the Overarching Outcome, “Increased accessibility to actionable and accurate FDA communication and benefit/risk information?” Are there gaps in support?
      2. Do the proposed performance indicators provide meaningful measurement of progress toward the Contributing Outcomes? Can you suggest any others for us to consider?
  3. Taking each major Contributing Outcome I through IV in turn, please consider the questions:
    1. Do the lower level contributing outcomes support this outcome? Are there gaps in support?
    2. Do the listed activities and sample specific actions for each contributing outcome implement the outcome? Can you suggest other activities we might consider, if possible?
    3. Do the proposed performance indicators provide meaningful measurement of progress toward the outcomes? Can you suggest any others for us to consider?
