Survey on communication of biosecurity alerts

Survey link: Communication with veterinary practitioners in times of biosecurity alerts

Researchers at the Australian National University are inviting you (veterinary practitioners registered in Australia) to participate in a survey about communication of biosecurity information on domestic and exotic animal health, including disease alerts.

This aim of the project is to better understand how to communicate with you in times of both notifiable or non-notifiable biosecurity alerts and animal disease outbreaks. Updating you on the latest information enhances the veterinary sector's knowledge of this information and ensures that the latest information is being communicated to domestic animal owners.

Survey results will be used to:

  • make sure information is communicated via media with which veterinary practitioners regularly engage, and
  • help biosecurity-based professionals develop tailored, targeted information so most vets in Australia are reached in times of biosecurity alerts.

The online survey should take about 10 minutes of your time. The study is anonymous: only demographic data is requested not contact details. The ANU Human Research Ethics Committee has approved the survey (approval number 2017-317).
