Held Monthly

Next Research Workshop: THURSDAY 1ST FEBRUARY 2018!

Survey design for health professionals

Surveys are often seen as fast, effective ways to gather a lot of information for clinical research, particularly with the availability of online surveys such as SurveyMonkey. However, there are many pitfalls. It is common that surveys deliver limited or even, unusable, misleading data. Understanding how to design surveys that deliver meaningful answers to your clinical questions is the focus of this workshop from the conceptual to the practical level. Audience participation will be invited. Online survey tool use including Qualtrics, SurveyMonkey and Redcap will be briefly described but not a main focus.

Presented by Dr Fiona (Fi) Graham

Senior Lecturer, Rehabilitation Teaching and Research Unit (RTRU), Dept. of Medicine, University of Otago, Wellington.

Meeting Room 2.3b Burwood Hospital
12.00 -1.00 pm

Limited to 20 people - registration essential.
