Survey questionnaire is a quantitative type of research method. CAG conduct surveys during April colorectal meeting since 2015.

Writing different questions, constructing good questions (e.g. easy language, easy understanding etc) and piloting are important steps to consider (Creswell; 2012). We design survey forms considering several steps suggested by (Williams, 2013)

  1. Define your research question and study population.
  2. Decide how the questionnaire will be administered
  3. Formulate questions
  4. Formulate the responses
  5. Design the layout
  6. Pre-pilot the questions and layout
  7. Pilot study – test validity, reliability, acceptability
  8. Design coding scheme (if necessary).
  9. Web based or print questionnaire.

All steps are important particularly piloting and testing validity and reliability and acceptability.
