New Survey on Generic Medications
A group of national and provincial organizations who work with, and represent individuals and families living with a wide range of mental health conditions responding to concerns raised by our clients, members and constituents/stakeholders, came together to gain better insight into their experiences with medications.To better understand direct experiences with medications, we have launched a nation-wide survey requesting feedback from individuals, caregivers and healthcare providers on existing knowledge and experience with brand name and generic medications.
Patients and caregivers are invited to complete the survey posted at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/FKC8YFB.
Clinicians are asked to complete the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/MFLJWFV.
The survey will be available online until April 15th, 2015.
After the survey results have been analyzed a paper will be written and shared. Without awareness and knowledge patients, their caregivers and their prescribing physicians cannot make informed decisions about treatment options.
Thank you in advance for your help with this survey!
