Autism Training Survey for WA Health Professionals

The Autism Association of Western Australia is partnering with the WA Health Sector to develop training packages and resources to increase Autism awareness within the health sector. The ultimate aim of this initiative is to improve access to health care and the health outcomes for individuals with Autism.

About the Survey
This survey is for WA Health Professionals. It will take a maximum of 5 minutes to complete.

The aim of this survey is to understand your perception of your ability to provide health care to people with Autism and the type of training and resources you need to feel confident when interacting with people with Autism and improve their health outcomes. 

To ensure the training and resources we develop are relevant, we want to hear from you.

All responses are anonymous unless you choose to provide your contact details at the end of the survey.
