Survey to Determine Current and Accurate Canada-Wide Laboratory Human Resource, Workload and Practice Patterns
Thu, 08 Sep 2016

The Canadian Association of Pathologists (CAP-ACP) Workload and Workforce Committee is conducting a national survey to determine current and accurate Canada wide laboratory human resource, workload and practice patterns.

We believe that this information would be helpful for your laboratory, all Canadian laboratories and the CAP-ACP to understand resources and practice patterns in similar laboratories across Canada, and enable advocacy for resources at a local, provincial and national levels. It will also be a great resource for human resources planning locally, provincially and nationally.

We will be most obliged, if you would please respond to this survey and return to the Chair of the committee, Raymond Maung ( by 30 September 2016.  Please forward to other individual(s) in your organization as you see appropriate.

The time needed to complete the survey will depend on the size and complexity of your organization. For most laboratories it should take 15-20 minutes and for large complex institutions, a combined time of about one hour of several individuals.

We will share the collated anonymized data and analyzed information with all participants. Each participant will know which anonymized result represents their laboratory and be able to compare with their relevant counterparts by type of institution, province and nationally. We will as resources permit, answer specific question(s) if requested. If there is a good response rate and results appear helpful for our profession, we will submit an anonymized summary for publication.

Thank you in advance for your help.
