FNHA Launches Survey to Gather Views of BC First Nations - Link here to the survey and FNHA resources.

The following is a press release from the First Nations Health Authority, June 5, 2018.  

 

"FNHA is very interested in the views and beliefs of First Nations and Aboriginal people in BC as it responds to the opioid crisis, changes to federal cannabis policy, and works towards improving cancer screening rates for First Nations and Aboriginal people in BC.

 

In May, FNHA launched its Health Attitudes and Beliefs Survey to better understand the perspectives of BC First Nations on these topics—so that FNHA can improve how it delivers health programs, services, and shares public health information with clients.

 

FNHA has hired R.A. Malatest & Associates Ltd. to administer the short survey. Households across BC have been randomly selected via postal code to participate in this survey.

FNHA would like to hear your voice and we encourage you to participate in this survey. The survey takes about 10 to 12 minutes to complete. As a thank you for participating, your name will be entered into a draw to win a $500, $300 or $100 prize.

 

Taking part in the survey is voluntary and confidential. No one will know your answers. Your participation in the survey will not affect any services you are currently receiving.

To complete the survey, call toll-free 1-855-412-1941 or complete the survey online at www.fn​​.malatest.net.

 

The survey asks some questions about sensitive topics—including substance use, pain, trauma, and cancer screening—that may be upsetting to survey participants. For cultural and/or emotional support, please contact FNHA's crisis line 1-800-588-8717.​

 

For more information, please refer to this ​Freque​ntly Asked Questions 

​gu​id​e​​​​​.​​​​ ​​​It includes details about the survey, important privacy information, and additional resources on substance use, harm reduction, overdose, and cancer screening."  (Retrieved from http://www.fnha.ca/about/news-and-events/news/fnha-launches-survey-to-gather-views-of-bc-first-nations-on-opioids-harm-reduction-cannabis-legalization-and-cancer-screening)
