Survey about working with elderly people
The University of NSW, Macquarie University and RMIT university are conducting a survey, commissioned by United Voice and the Health Services Union, about working with older people.
If you are someone who spends the majority of your time working as an Allied Health Professional providing services/care/assistance to elderly people in a non-managerial role, then we would encourage you to participate in this survey, which aims to understand experiences of working with older people and how care for older people could be improved.
Please note that this is a generic survey for a wide variety of employees working with elderly people. As such, at first glance, it may not seem overly relevant to Allied Health Professionals.
However, we believe that it is important that Allied Health Professionals are heard and can provide valuable insights on this issue – which is why we encourage you, if you work as an Allied Health Professional in aged care, to participate in this survey and answer the questions according to your experiences.
We firstly ask that in question 1 you choose “Other” and add your profession. Secondly, please take any reference to “Aged Care” in the survey to mean working with elderly people. Thirdly, where a question may not seem relevant to you and you must complete the question to progress through the survey, answer the questions as best as you can.
