National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) has a

requirement for a 100 percent Small Business Set-aside (SIC 8732 -

$3.5M) to perform a survey on a national stratified sample of

physicians who treat children to assess the current status of

physicians' attitudes, knowledge, and practice behaviors related to

the clinical management of coronary heart disease (CHD) risk factors

in children, and changes in these areas from the time the first

survey was conducted in December 1987 through February 1988.  This

survey will attempt to obtain the current information by means of a

nationwide telephone interview; identify major changes in this

information since the time of the first survey; identify possible

barriers in utilization of the guidelines issued by the National

Cholesterol Education Program's Expert Panel on Blood Cholesterol

Levels in Children and Adolescents and the NHLBI Working Group Report

on High Blood Pressure in Children; and identify possible existing

gaps in physician knowledge and other attitudinal and practice issues

that may be obstacles in the primary care setting for the practice of

pediatric preventive cardiology.

Such efforts would require organizations with senior survey

statistical and sampling expertise, expertise in questionnaire

development and formatting, and in designing, planning, and managing

telephone surveys, including processing and analyzing the data

collected.  Qualified interviewers having telephone survey experience

with health professionals in private practice must be available.  The

organization must also have experience (directly or through a

subcontractor) in performing national telephone surveys and data

analysis of such survey data.  An incrementally funded contract will

be awarded for a period of 30 months.


RFP NHLBI-HC-93-09 is now available and responses are due by April 6,

1993 at 4:00pm.  A written request must include three self-addressed

labels and must cite RFP number NHLBI-HC-93-09.  Address requests to:
