You’re likely to be here because you've received a link to our online survey ‒ so what is it all about?
We've developed a survey to find out:
a bit about who you are
how you use health services
what challenges (if any) you face when trying to find or access health information or health services
if a one-stop digital (eg, app, website) health platform existed, if you'd use it and what topics you'd like to see on it
if you're interested in helping us to bring this digital health tool together. See more information here.
The survey is for Kiwi youth aged 13‒25 years.
It will take about 5 minutes and asks you 31 questions.
Initial results can be found here.
Why should I complete the survey?
There's some awesome prizes up for grabs. The prizes will be drawn in the second week of June.
If we're going to build a new digital tool that works for YOU, we need you to tell us what you need and what you want.
If you want to join us to design and build this tool ‒ you can tell us within the survey.
What happens to my info?
Information will be stored securely and held in a locked down database. Only two people from the project team will have access to the data.
None of the info we use to help us design the digital tool will ever identify any person who has taken part in the survey.
If you have given us your name and contact details through the survey to enter the prize draw, or to tell us you’re interested to work with us, these details are removed from your survey answers and stored separately so none of your survey answers will be seen with your name attached to them.
You can stop and cancel out of the survey at any time.
