CFHA Blog Survey Results: You Spoke, We Listened

Posted By Matthew P. Martin, Thursday, January 23, 2014
During the recent annual CFHA conference in Colorado, we collected responses to a survey to help improve the CFHA blogs. Thirty individuals participated (23 identified as female while 7 identified as male). When asked what word described their professional identity, 33 used clinician (e.g., psychologist, social worker, physician, therapist), 7 used educator, 3 used researcher, 3 used administrator, 1 used student, and 1 used insurance company contractor. The average age was 43.7 years while the median age was 40.

Below are the six survey questions and results.

We asked survey participants to list topics they would like to see covered in the future and ideas for improving the blog overall. We got some good suggestions!

Please list any topics you would like to see covered in future blog posts:

"Inspirational blogs” "Things for educators to share with trainees”

"Useful measures, assessments, & tools for practice” "Outcomes, cost savings”

"Integrated care, health care policies at international level” "Best practices for addressing MH”

"Hospital reform - purchase of PCP practices, upcharging for outpatient office visits”

"Assessment tools” "Ethics of integrated care, informed consent, confidentiality” "Outcome measurement for integration” "Policy piece with data/evidence paired with a clinical story”

Please list any ideas you think would help to improve the blog:

"Fewer more poignant rather than many of marginal quality”

"More info in email announcing blog posts”

"Time constraints for reading - shorten messages into brief sentences.”

"Collection of articles, blogs that are user-friendly categorized by topic - easy access to resources” "Get some back-&-forth blogs going, pitching different perspectives on similar issues/themes”

Overall, it seems that most people are mostly interested in and satisfied with the blogs. However, it also seems that most of the blogs are not useful to readers. Our goal is to incorporate this feedback to improve the overall quality and utility of the blog posts. The specific ideas for topics generated by survey participants will especially help future blog posts. Thank you to all of the survey participants! If you have any additional ideas, please share those ideas with us in the comment section below.
