This composite measures how effectively the provider shares information related to preventive care, such as weight management, with the patient. The survey asks patients the following questions:

In the last 12 months, did your personal doctor…

  • Remind you to get preventive care that you were due to receive (for example, flu shot, cancer screening, mammogram, eye exam)?
  • Talk to you about a healthy diet and healthy eating habits?
  • Talk to you about the exercise or physical activity you get?
  • Talk to you about things in your life that worry you or cause you stress?
  • Ask you whether there was a period of 2 weeks or more when you felt sad, empty or depressed?
