Ataxia UK has received a request from the European commission for all of us to complete a short survey. I have included their invitation below with a link to the survey below that. We would be extremely grateful if you would consider completing it.
The European Commission—through its unit supporting research and innovation in technologies for ageing and integrated care—is undertaking a short survey. It aims to find out how people who are living with long-lasting illnesses or conditions think that services in the home (like mobile phones, the internet, or personal health monitors) which communicate with the doctor, nurse or other care professional could help enhance independent living and care. The views of patients and carers have been often overlooked in this subject area. This survey is your opportunity to make your voice heard.
• The survey is open to anybody who is living with illnesses or conditions that last many years (or even a lifetime), and to the carers of people living with illnesses or conditions that last many years (or even a lifetime).
• The survey is being conducted online on a specialist survey website, allowing all responses to be completely anonymous and confidential.
• The results of the survey will be made public by the European Commission’s Directorate General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology (DG CONNECT) at a conference in Athens, 12th-14th May 2014.
• All survey participants can have a copy of the results emailed to them, if they wish.
WHEN THIS SURVEY WILL CLOSE
