An Essential Guide to Questionnaire Design

Patient self-completion questionnaires are now an essential component in the measurement of patient experience and satisfaction. Executed correctly, they can help you to get a much deeper understanding and insight into the experiences, attitudes and behaviours of your patients, help you and your team to better  connect with your patients and provide improved services.

However, designing a patient survey questionnaire whether it’s to measure patient satisfaction or patient experience is more than simply writing some questions expecting patients to understand them and give reliable and valid answers.
