Healthy Environments and Lives (HEAL) Network Survey of Researchers, Policy Actors, Community and Practitioners

To address the health impacts of climate and environmental change, it is essential for environmental health research to be successfully translated into policy and practice, making a real-world impact. To better understand current gaps and opportunities in environmental health research translation and collaboration, the Healthy Environments and Lives Network (HEAL) and the University of Adelaide are undertaking a survey of research, policy and practice professionals, community members, community organisations and other interested stakeholders.

The survey has received ethics approval (HREC Approval: University of Adelaide H-2023-069) and takes around 20 minutes to complete. Please click here to access further information and to participate in the survey.
