How Do Public Health Communications Impact You? Survey Now Open!

Public health agencies are experts at communicating with the public, but exchanging information between agencies, practitioners, and researchers is just as important. Take a short survey to share whether NWCPHP communications provide value to you as a public health professional by contributing to your knowledge, connecting you to others in the field, and sharing ideas.

While communicating with the public will always be vital to the mission of public health, communication among public health agencies and stakeholders is equally important. Public health practitioners and researchers have a wealth of knowledge to distribute, numerous networks to build, and a supply of success stories to share.

NWCPHP attempts to facilitate this information sharing by providing a variety of informative and appealing communication pieces to the public health practice community. Please take a short survey to share your opinion of these communication activities.

Why should I take this survey?

Over time, we have expanded our collection of communication pieces to include a revamped website, a monthly postcard series, e-newsletters, a Spotlight on the Field series, e-mail announcements, and a Facebook page.

We hope to learn more about the outcomes of these inter-agency public health communication pieces, especially if your agency or project has been featured in one of our postcard series, on our website, or in a Spotlight piece. Your feedback ensures our communications pieces remain a useful resource.

What do I need to do?

Take about five minutes to fill out an online survey, telling us whether you find value in NWCPHP communication pieces, and how they impact your knowledge of public health, your connection with public health in the region, and your access to ideas.

We also encourage you to spread the word about this survey to colleagues and friends.

How will my answers be used?

Your responses are confidential and will be analyzed collectively with other participant responses. NWCPHP does not disclose individually identifiable responses. Aggregate data will contribute to an evaluation of NWCPHP communication pieces and identify what we should continue and what we should improve. We want to be useful to the practice community and this evaluation will improve our understanding of the importance of inter-agency public health communications.

STORY TO SHARE?
