Self-Care Readiness Index Consumer Survey
The Global Self-Care Federation (GSCF) invites members of the International Alliance of Patient Organizations’ network to participate in a patient survey gauging knowledge and attitudes towards self-care products and practices. The survey results will feed into the research process for GSCF’s forthcoming Self-Care Readiness Index. The Federation has undertaken the Index project as part of its 3-year Collaboration Plan with the World Health Organization. The Self-Care Readiness Index aims to identify and discuss the critical enablers for “self-care readiness” in a health system and will offer a measure of selected national systems, underscoring existing progress and identifying opportunities for improvement. The survey will provide critical primary data to underpin the Index’s evaluation of patients’ and consumers’ trust and support for self-care practices.
