DLF Data prescriber survey
For 50 years DLF has been providing information to healthcare professionals to support them in providing advice about suitable equipment for independent living. In the 1980s and 90s we published the ubiquitous Hamilton Index. More recently, since the noughties, we have run DLF-Data.

We now want to design a modern tool to support professionals with their prescribing decisions and we are consulting with current and potential users about how this would need to work. Would you be able to answer some questions about this area of work? The survey should take around 5-10 minutes to complete.
