Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) would like your participation on a needs assessment

We received an email from the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) which develops and disseminates national evidence-based infection prevention and control (IPC) guidance for healthcare settings.  
PHAC is currently conducting a review to inform the revision of its 2002 Prevention and Control of Occupational Infections in Health Care Guideline. 

At this time, PHAC is re-opening the needs assessment questionnaire in an effort to increase responses from practitioners in the field of occupational health.  Please participate. 

PHAC would like your feedback as it will help to inform the revision of the 2002 guideline.   

Please click here  (or paste this link in your browser:[$PIN]&lang=en ) to access the questionnaire. 

Participation is voluntary.  All individual responses will remain anonymous and kept confidential.  The results will be summarized by PHAC and presented in aggregate form only. 

The questionnaire should take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete and will be available for completion until January 12, 2018 at 23:59 Eastern Standard Time. 

Should you have any questions, please contact Andrea Coady at

PHAC thanks you in advance for your participation.
