Consumer Expectations & Experiences of the Health Care System – An International Study

How to get involved

The CONVERSATIONS project is a large international project. The research team is currently inviting health consumers across various regions to participate in the project. Please scroll down to find out how you can be involved in one of two groundbreaking studies - the Regional South Australia survey and the International survey.
 

CONVERSATIONS - Regional South Australian Health Survey

The regional SA survey (which has been reviewed and approved by the Human Research Ethics Committee of the University of South Australia) seeks to gather the views and experiences of health consumers living in rural, remote and regional South Australia; this will help us to understand the health care needs of health consumers, to determine how responsive the health system is to these needs, and to identify areas where the health system could improve to better serve these needs.

If you meet the five criteria below, you will be eligible to participate in the survey:
 
(1) Over the age of 18 years,
(2) Have used a health care service or received any health intervention within the last 12 months,
(3) Live in rural, remote or regional South Australia,
(4) Have internet access, and
(5) Are able to read and understand the English language.
 
The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. To thank you for your participation, you will be invited to enter a draw to win one of 20 x AU$50 Visa Cards. If you would like to enter this draw, please indicate this in the box specified on completion of the survey.
