Updating veterinary practitioners on the latest biosecurity information relating to domestic and exotic animal health and disease alerts is of the utmost importance to enhance knowledge of this information in the sector and so that the most up to date information is being communicated to domestic animal owners.
The aim of this project is to better understand how to communicate with veterinary practitioners in times of both notifiable and non-notifiable biosecurity alerts and animal disease outbreaks. The results will ensure that current and future communications in this space are tailored to mediums with which veterinary practitioners are regularly engaged with.
This information will also assist biosecurity based communication professionals develop information that can be tailored and targeted in times of biosecurity alerts, ensuring most veterinary practitioners within Australia are reached.
This survey is being undertaken as part of an Australian National University Master of Science Communication Research Project (ethics approval number 2017/317).
The survey results will be published within the scientific literature and the findings will be publicised through veterinary groups.
Survey participants remain anonymous and no contact details are requested only demographic data.
