Survey on Air Flow in IVF labs

FertAid25 June 2012
At my web site www.fertaid.com, I have been developing some dynamic survey tools. I have just posted 2 new surveys that may interest embryologists. The first deals with Air Flow and contamination (with Katy Worrilow (LifeAire) following on from her interview at www.LifeInVitro.com) and a second on annual census of IVF Laboratory activities in 2012. I am hoping to make the census a regular survey and so develop over time a profile of how laboratories are changing. While there is always more questions to ask that space available, hopefully these 2 new surveys will provide some insight into how others are managing their labs. I would encourage labs from all over the world to consider completing them since I have provided tools to dissect the data by countries. Maybe some clinics could use this as a quality activity for accreditation purposes.
If you could publicise these among IVF.net members, it would be great.
The surveys are found at [http://www.fertaid.com/FertAid/FertAid_Surveys.asp].
The survey tools have been developed with lab managers in mind. Specifically while anyone can reply to questions, if you register before completing the survey, the information can be examined in ways other survey tools don’t. I have provided some basic filters and tools to allow interrogation of the data to hopefully provide meaningful information in an open access manner in particular by country. The data is dynamically available to anyone regardless of whether they have completed the survey. I am keen to help others who wish to set up other surveys or questionnaires.
