Personnel and Training RequiredThe interviewer must be trained to conduct personal interviews with individuals from the general population. The interviewer must be trained and found to be competent (i.e., tested by an expert) at the completion of personal interviews. The interviewer should be trained to prompt respondents further if a "dont know" response is provided.
Equipment NeedsThe interviewer will need the show card containing the diagram of the upper body for assessing regions of pain.
|Specialized requirements for biospecimen collection||No|
|Average time of greater than 15 minutes in an unaffected individual||No|
Mode of Administration
Participants are aged 17 and older.
The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) questions were selected because they address gallbladder disease issues briefly and reliably. Investigators can compare the results of their studies with this major national survey.
