Abstract

Surveys of clinicians play a pivotal role in dermatology research, including to determine expert opinion, identify areas of uncertainty in clinical practice, define research priorities, investigate feasibility and explore areas of clinical equipoise. Despite the commonality of research involving surveys distributed to dermatologists, we previously identified the issue of poor‐quality survey design and lack of sufficient validation prior to distribution. Furthermore, a review of postal surveys of healthcare professionals from 1996 to 2005 has shown declining response rates, introducing potential non‐responder bias. To support stronger methodological quality and reporting of clinician survey, we developed a checklist for authors, based on our experience and published literature.
