National study involves health science professionals

Key goal is to address recruitment and retention issues and how best to address these challenges.

Vancouver (16 Dec. 2010) - The Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC) is conducting a national study to identify issues of concern to health science professionals trained at community colleges.

The Health Sciences Association of British Columbia (HSABC/NUPGE) says one of the goals of the project, funded by Health Canada, is to develop policy recommendations on how best to address recruitment and retention issues for these health science professions and how best to address these challenges.

The national association is seeking input from health science professionals, policy makers, educators, regulators and students to identify the most important areas of policy focus.

HSABC is encouraging its members to visit www.academicagroup.ca/surveys/NAHPS and take part. Participation is voluntary.

The anonymous survey is being conducted by Academica Group, a research firm contracted by the ACCC. The survey is available online until midnight on Friday, Dec. 31, and should require about 10-15 minutes of your time. Contact surveys@academicagroup.com for any technical difficulties.
