Survey of health and social service professionals in Canada

The Canadian Public Health Association (CPHA) and Centre for Sexuality (C4S) are inviting you to participate in a survey focused on how stigma related to sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections (STBBIs) shows up in your workplace, as well as your perceptions regarding how your workplace is (or could be) addressing STBBI-related stigma. This survey is being conducted as part of our project focused on developing tools, resources and approaches to support organizations to provide training and improve their organizational policies and practices to reduce stigma related to sexuality, substance use and STBBIs. Your insights will help shape the tools and resources developed throughout this project as well as the approaches we will take when engaging with potential partner organizations.

Who can participate in the survey? Anyone who is working within a health or social service organization (part time or full time) in Canada can complete this survey. This includes people in a wide range of roles including, for example, nurses, physicians, allied health professionals, mental health professionals, peer support workers, patient navigators, support staff, management/leadership, human resources, or program staff.

Why should I participate in this survey? Participation in the survey is completely voluntary. We hope that findings will support the creation of tools, resources and processes to support organizations in addressing STBBI-related stigma.

How long will the survey take? The survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete.

When does the survey close? This survey will be open until March 10, 2023.
