Feedback and associated survey information

The overall purpose of the feedback and associated surveys is to seek feedback and determine the overall usefulness of resources to women, clinicians and health services; and to identify any barriers to and facilitators of statewide implementation. The surveys collect feedback from people who have accessed or used the resources.

If you decide to provide feedback and/or take part in the surveys, you will help Queensland Health to improve the resources available for partnering with the woman who decline recommended maternity care and help Queensland maternity services plan for their implementation.

The surveys will take approximately 5 to 25 minutes to complete. If you decide to complete a survey, all questions are optional. You may answer as many or as few questions as you would like. Where questions ask for your personal information, this is to enable Queensland Health to seek further input from you if needed. In all reports, research, and publications from this trial of the resources, only de-identified information will be used, and all survey responses will be kept confidential. Direct quotations from your responses may be used in reports but identifying features will be omitted or changed and pseudonyms used to protect your identity.

You are free to decide whether to provide feedback and/or participate in these surveys or not. Providing feedback and/or proceeding to the surveys and completing as many of the questions as you wish, will be taken as your informed consent to participate in these evaluations. If you decide not to participate, no information will be collected and we thank you for your consideration.
