Over the years we've heard many school health services professionals say they'd like to compare their own health center to others of similar size, budget, employees, etc. The problem is, that information hasn't been available. So we set out to change that. We're excited, and think you will be too!
With the input and expertise of six independent school nurses, we developed the Annual Research Questionnaire of Independent School Health Services. Created with health staff, for health staff, this questionnaire aims to connect the dots between what is desired and what is lacking. In order to do that, we need the participation of as many schools as possible. The questionnaire is designed to collect school-wide data, therefore only one submission per school is recommended.
Over the next three weeks, the questionnaire will be open to all independent school health professionals. By participating, not only are you contributing to ground-breaking research, you are developing much demanded benchmarks. In addition, you're helping create a nationwide community, to which comparison data and results are available annually. Completing the 20 minute questionnaire (50 multiple choice questions) provides you the opportunity to share your perspective and contribute to the 2013-2014 Annual Report of Independent School Health Services.
