Purpose: To describe the design and implementation of an INTERNET-based telephone survey about the care planning process in 100 long term care (LTC) facilities in Kansas and Missouri. Method: Two structured telephone surveys were developed to interview the care planning coordinators (214 items) and care planning team members (92 items) in 100 LTC facilities. Questionmark Perception Software Version 3 was used to develop the INTERNET-based surveys. The surveys included items in a wide range of formats, using templates in a Windows NT environment. The responses were drawn into a database that was exported to a spreadsheet (EXCEL) format. The Information Technology team converted the EXCEL database to useful files for statistical analysis. Security of the database was protected. Training sessions were provided to project staff in a computer laboratory allowing multiple users to log on to the INTERNET-based surveys simultaneously; this session included a mock data collection session with a trained investigator. Headsets were provided to the interviewers so their hands were free to key the subject’s responses. The interviews were tape recorded for the purpose of quality checks on the data. For 10% of the facilities, the inter-rater reliabilities were above 95-100% agreement. Conclusions: Investigators should consider using INTERNET-based survey tools, especially for multi-site studies, and with large sample of participants. Exploring multiple software systems for the best fit to the study requirements is essential. An INTERNET-based survey allows access to larger samples at less cost. Response rates can be monitored and participation encouraged as needed. The project is funded from NINR (RO1 NR08028)
