Publication Date: Jun 15th, 2020 08:07, Category: Associated Organisations Announcements
The Women in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering ( WiMPBME) of the International Union for Physical and Engineering Sciences in Medicine (IUPESM) recently designed a survey addressing the issues of working from home during Covid. Please find the message below:
We invite you to participate in a survey that aims to collect data about the main issues that biomedical engineers and medical physicists (academics and professionals) and other related STEM professionals are facing when working from home in the current pandemic COVID-19 situation.
The survey is being conducted by the Women in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering task group of International Union for Physical and Engineering Sciences in Medicine (IUPESM). We strongly encourage you to complete the questionnaire so that we can identify how our workforce has been affected by the working from home situation. Every response will help maximize the statistical power of the study. The data collected will be non-identifiable. Our intention is to publish the results as well as present at relevant conferences. It will take you ~10-15 minutes to complete the survey.
Analyzed data will be presented at relevant professional conferences and in a publication.
This research has been cleared by Carleton University Research Ethics Board-B (CUREB-B Clearance #112898), under the study title: GENDER AND WORK FROM HOME DURING COVID19 SURVEY.
All medical physicists, biomedical engineers and other STEM scientists in academia or clinics over the age of 18 are eligible to participate. Participation is completely voluntary and there is no remuneration offered for your time.
We at IUPESM care about your privacy and are committed to protecting your personal information in accordance with fair information practices and applicable data privacy laws. The privacy notice is included in the survey’s introduction.
As part of this survey, data is only visible to the survey administrator and all records are anonymized during collection. Please note that we are not asking for your personal contact details.
The non-personal data will be aggregated to provide broad demographic information, such as the geographic location of participants. Collecting this type of information allows us to analyze trends and statistics and provide better service and security.
