Preference of continuing care staff for electronic surveys.

Author information

Department of Psychology, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada.


Do care staff feel they participate in too much research, and are electronic surveys a convenient way of collecting data? Care staff at Canada's largest public provider of facility-based continuing care were asked these questions in a questionnaire (i.e., electronic survey or paper survey) developed for this study. A total of 25 nursing managers and 32 other professional care staff indicated that they preferred electronic surveys and were satisfied with the extent of their research participation. They also indicated that workload was the main deterrent to their research participation. Use of electronic surveys could positively affect the researcher/care staff relationship that is so important to the quality of health-care research.
