TranZnation Survey

Click here to participate in the TranZnation survey. Here is the general gist, with more info on the site:

'This survey aims to examine the health and wellbeing of individuals in the trans communities. It is being carried out by the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society (ARCSHS) at La Trobe University and Gay and Lesbian Health Victoria which is part of ARCSHS...

Why complete the survey?

This survey is aimed to provide information about the health and wellbeing of people who are transgender, transsexual or of transsexual background. It will provide information about concerns and key issues they have regarding their utilization of health services and about their general wellbeing.

How will my survey information be used?

The research that will be generated by the TranZnation survey will benefit people who are transgender, transsexual or of transsexual background by capturing a clearer understanding of the way health service provision affects individuals. It will also help guide the implementation of services that are more relevant and appropriate to transgender people. Your input, therefore, has the potential to influence the scope of what the health sector has to offer the trans communities and to modify the way health professionals interact with individuals within those communities.'

Please complete this if you can, and/or pass it on to relevant persons and networks. Most of you will be familiar with the lack of understanding and empathy for trans issues (indeed, LGBTQ issues in general) amongst many in the healthcare profession community. And remember, if you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem- so get answering!
