Improving FDA Communication and Information Flow
FDA Establishing an Advisory Committee on Communication

On January 30, 2007, FDA announced that it is establishing a new advisory committee to obtain input to improve FDA's communication policies and practices and to advise FDA on implementing communication strategies consistent with the best available and evolving evidence. The committee will include patients and consumers as well as experts in risk and crisis communication, and social and cognitive sciences. The first meeting of this advisory committee is anticipated for early 2008. FDA expects to be announcing a call for member nominations later in 2007.
