Deadline June 27, 2010
Please encourage women you know to take a moment to fill out a 20 minute electronic survey about the health issues that are of most interest to them, especially in relation to personal experiences with health, services, information and treatment. The information gathered will help to increase our understanding and provide an overview of the health issues for women in Ontario. The survey is anonymous and seeks to hear from women across Ontario. We are encouraging women from a wide range of experiences and backgrounds to participate in the survey. We strongly encourage women who are often under-represented in women's health research, including but not limited to: Aboriginal women, immigrant and refugee women, rural women, lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans women and women with disabilities to fill out the survey and ensure the issues are represented.
This survey is part of a project called Health Research and Knowledge Translation: Including the Voices of Ontario Women. This project is being carried out by a partnership that includes the Ontario Women's Health Network, and is under the guidance of an Advisory Committee. The project is funded by Echo: Improving Women's Health in Ontario, an agency of the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.
Please pass on the survey link to women you work with, friends, family members and other women in the community.
The survey is available online until June 27 at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/womenhealth.
