Survey Introduction

The Executive Committee of the World Conference on Tobacco or Health Scientific Program Committee requests your participation in a survey that will help to document international tobacco control activities, and to foster communication and collaboration between WCTOH conferences in order to improve global tobacco control efforts. Your participation is completely voluntary. We hope you will choose to participate because this type of evaluation will help the Executive Committee to plan future WCTOH conferences, can help funders identify tobacco control needs, and can improve collaboration to improve tobacco control. To make the evaluation most effective, we need a very high response rate. Please respond now if you can. 

Rationale: The purpose of this survey is to document the communication and collaboration networks of global tobacco experts who attend the WCTOH. Your response will help to map the expertise in tobacco control throughout the world and to create a resource for the tobacco control community so that communication and collaboration can be improved. This baseline survey is the first step in better understanding the research-to-practice knowledge flow in order to maximize and synchronize global tobacco control efforts between WCTOH conferences.

Please note that the data you provide will be used by the Executive Committee in order to better understand the needs of the attendees and to foster collaboration between conferences. It will also be analyzed by the evaluation team to assess the nature of global tobacco control collaboration in order to better understand how improvements in tobacco control coordination can be accomplished. Please note that if you provide your name or organization's name, it could become known publicly when the information is published or presented. This is similar to when the name is known of an individual who posts a question or answer on a listserv or public forum. Because our goal is to help foster communication and collaboration, including names is needed to best assure that those who are doing similar work can communicate with each other.

Duration/Time: We know that your time is valuable, so we have tried to keep the survey as short as possible while still serving our objectives. This survey should take about 10-15 minutes to complete.
