Positive responses received from HealthInfoNet Substance use survey

Date posted: 23 July 2012

The Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet recently conducted a survey on the substance use section of its website - including alcohol use, illicit drug use, volatile substance use, and tobacco use.

The aim of the survey was to gather general information about users, gauge user satisfaction, and gain feedback about interest in a plain language website (portal) for Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) workers. The survey ran from 21 May to 22 June 2012, and had 118 responses from website users.

The survey found that users were very satisfied with the AIH website, with 97% of respondents liking the look and design of the website. Most users reported that the substance used section ‘always' or ‘mostly' had the information they need for work, and there was also strong support for a plain language portal for AOD workers.

Interested survey participants went into a draw to win a choice of either a camera, an iPod, or a $100 voucher. The HealthInfoNet would like to congratulate Colleen Berry, from the Western Australian Department of Health, who was the winner of the prize.

The substance use team thanks all participants for their valuable feedback. A two-page summary of survey results, containing more detail, is attached as a pdf for download.
