Survey: Addressing organizational stigma related to sexuality, substance use and sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections (STBBIs)

This online survey of health and social service professionals was designed by the Canadian Public Health Association (CPHA) and Centre for Sexuality (C4S) to help better understand the current state of organizations’ knowledge, capacity, and interest toward addressing stigma related to sexuality, substance use and sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections (STBBIs).

Data from this survey will inform the identification of knowledge and capacity needs, and accompanying development of capacity-building tools and other resources. The results of this survey may also be shared with partner organizations and/or at professional meetings or conferences. The survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete.

Anyone who is working within a health or social service organization (part time or full time) in Canada can complete this survey. This can include people in a wide range of roles including, for example, nurses, physicians, allied health professionals, mental health professionals, peer support workers, patient navigators, support staff, management/leadership, human resources, or program staff. 
Your participation in this survey is completely voluntary. By clicking ‘Next page’, you are providing your consent to participate in the survey. If you agree to participate, you will be asked questions in multiple-choice, rating, and open-ended formats. A select few questions must be completed in order to advance to the next page of the survey. All required questions are indicated by a green asterisk beside the question number  At the beginning of the survey, you will be asked some demographic questions, and at the end of the survey you will have the option to be redirected to a new form (not linked to your survey responses) to enter your email address for future updates on CPHA’s work in the area of STBBI-related stigma reduction.

You may withdraw or stop participating at any time without any penalty by closing your browser or exiting the survey. You can also choose not to answer specific questions and still complete the survey.
We hope that findings from this survey will support the creation of tools, resources and processes to support health and social service organizations in Canada to address STBBI-related stigma.
