PAA Member Survey – Alberta Psychology during a pandemic
All Five reports are now available!
Since April 2020 PAA Office has been surveying members to gather a better understanding of the invaluable work of psychologists during a global pandemic. An online survey was sent to members in April, May, June, July, and August
These surveys aim to help PAA understand, and respond to, the impacts of this pandemic on psychological practice in Alberta, particularly as there are currently no known models on how to operate as a psychologist or as a professional
association during a pandemic. Surveys asked about the impact of the pandemic on members professionally, personally, and on those to whom they provide psychological services. It also asked about members’ use of telepsychology, their practice clarity, and the effectiveness of PAA’s communications and professional support for them.
There are 3 questions in each of 7 areas with an opportunity for member’s comments and qualitative feedback at the end of the survey. Response rate for questions varied from 101 to 400 participants of PAA’s 2 600 members.
