Researchers from Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in Shreveport, LA are conducting a 15-20 minute survey to identify consumer health information services.
The researchers hope to receive responses from public libraries, academic institutions, hospitals and not-for-profit organizations involved in consumer health information services. The goal is to identify what services are currently offered, who is offering them and how often.
The data may be able to assist other organizations in implementing new consumer health information services. Organizations that participate will be entered for a drawing to win one of two $300 checks. After the survey period, 53 randomly chosen hospital librarians that complete the follow-up survey will receive $10 for their time and effort.
This research is possible through financial support from the Hospital Libraries Section of the Medical Library Association. The survey will be open from April 15, 2013 to April 30, 2013 at 11:45 pm Pacific time. If you are willing to participate, please go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2012_CHISS.
