CSGNA & AMGEN 2021 Fall Needs Assessment

This survey allows CSGNA and AMGEN to gather critical feedback, from our growing network, on how to better serve your needs. It also allows the exchange of information that will guide future action.

This survey is meant to take 1-2 minutes to complete.

The mission of the CSGNA Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program is to promote excellence in the professional practice of Gastroenterology nursing. The CPD program supports the life-long learning needs of Gastroenterology nurses, associates and those in training.

Through a continuous iterative process, the goals are to:

  • Assess the professional development needs of the target audience.
  • Provide educational activities consistent with the educational needs.
  • Foster learning through various educational methods.
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of the educational activities and their effects on the knowledge, skills and attitudes of participants.

Through these goals, the CSGNA CPD program strives to enhance the knowledge, skills and attitudes of GI nurses in order to continue to improve health care in Canada.

We aim for excellence in comprehensive Gastroenterology nursing care by collaborating extensively across the Canadian Healthcare continuum and partnering with professional organizations and industry.

Support Canada’s IBD Nurses!

Canadian Digestive Health Foundation (CDHF) is conducting a study to best understand how Canadian Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) nurses impact the quality of care, health outcomes and quality of life of IBD patients and their caregivers. We need to gather statistical information about IBD nurses to understand how they have impacted your care, disease management and quality of life.

Filling out this ten-minute survey will do a lot to help us highlight the impact IBD nurses have on the lives of Canadians living with IBD, and show the right people how important it is to prioritize this type of care in long term health plans for the country.
