Results from the 2016 needs assessment survey have contributed to SiREN offering regular emails summarising the latest SHBBV evidence, and creating online videos about how to undertake aspects of program planning and evaluation.
Responses to the survey remain completely confidential and will not be identifiable to you or your organisation. Views from those who aren’t already SiREN Network members are also wanted! Complete the survey
The survey will be open until November 30th. A summary of the results will be posted on siren.org.au early in 2019.
