ANZMES SURVEY 2016 –
To be completed and sent in by the 5th December 2016
Survey link is:
There are some key points that it will be useful for you to understand before filling out the survey.
- It is totally voluntary to complete the survey.
- Completion of the survey is anonymous and so we will not know who has completed the survey or be able to link a person with their responses.
- All the responses will be joined together so only group information will be used.
- The final statistics from the survey will be shared with others. For example it may be shared with the media via a press release. This information will also be used for lobbying.
We are aware that ME/CFS has a large impact is a variety of areas and so we could have included many areas in this survey, however, we are also aware that completing a long survey would not be possible for many people with ME/CFS and so we have not been able to include all the areas.
We would encourage you to complete the survey, as the more people who complete the survey the more notice others will take of the results. If you know others with ME/CFS please encourage them to complete the survey as well.
The results will be summarised in the Meeting Place and on the ANZMES website.
The 12th of May is ME Day and this is a time when we encourage our members or those who wish to support us, by writing a letter to local Members of Parliament to make them aware of ME/CFS in the community.
