21 Oct Grant County Community Health Profile – Fall 2015
The Grant County Community Health Profile needs assessment initiative is in full swing. MGH has partnered with Indiana Wesleyan University School of Nursing to support our data collection efforts to obtain as many surveys from the community as possible. This method will be used as a tool to understand the health and health factors affecting our area. It is imperative that we gather an accurate account of the members of the population who are 18 years of age and older and live, work, or attend school in Grant County. We are excited about this initiative and the possibilities of influencing population health efforts.
This research survey is about health and health behaviors. It has been developed so you can tell us about your health and what you do that affects your health. The information you give will be used to improve health care and health education for people like yourself. The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete
DO NOT write your name on this survey. The answers you give will be kept private. No one will know what you write. Answer the questions honestly.
Completing the survey is voluntary. If you are not comfortable answering a question, please complete the response, ‘Refused’. Your participation will be of your own accord in this research project, and you release any claim to the data, research results, publication in any form, or commercial use of the information.
The questions that ask about your background will be used only to describe the individuals as a group completing this survey. The information will not be used to find out names or other personal information.
If you read the questionnaire yourself, make sure to read every question. Fill in the circles completely.
The questionnaire may also be read to you by one of the many community and student volunteers.
When you are finished, follow the instructions of the person giving you the survey or complete the final electronic submission.
Thank you very much for your help. If you have questions, please contact
