G-I-N's membership surveys
As with the elections, members’ involvement and feedback is extremely important to G-I-N. The membership committee is therefore launching its annual survey to assess your satisfaction and needs. We have revisited and shortened the survey to make your participation easier. This will also make the analysis and reporting of results quicker and simpler.
You can start answering to the survey today using this link: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/7YK28JT.
The deadline is: Friday 4 May 2012. (Please note that two reminders will be sent).
If you have any questions about the survey feel free to contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Minna Kaila and Magali Remy-Stockinger on behalf of the G-I-N membership committee
Thank you to everyone who completed the members’ questionnaire last December, which asked for your feedback on G-I-N’s website, newsletter and other communications channels.
The next steps are for the Communications team at the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) to help G-I-N’s Board of Trustees implement a number of initiatives that have been informed by your comments.
In the meantime, if you have any further suggestions about how G-I-N can continue to improve its communications to members, please feel free to get in touch with the Communications team at NICE.

Survey about guideline funding from the German Agency for Quality in Medicine (AQuMed/AEZQ)
We, a group of researchers from the German Agency of Quality in Medicine, would like to investigate how funding of clinical practice guidelines (CPG) has developed in the last five years, who the most common guideline financiers worldwide are and how much CPG development costs. To this end we have designed a short online questionnaire on the funding of CPGs. We would very much appreciate your participation in this questionnaire.
The ways CPGs are funded and how much they cost is an important issue as CPG development is resource consuming, funding often is inadequate and financial conflicts of interest can arise constituting a risk of biased recommendations. Despite the major relevance of guideline financing, insufficient information is published.
The results of this online questionnaire will be presented at the G-I-N-Conference 2012 in Berlin. Furthermore, the results will be published in the G-I-N-Newsletter and in a medical journal. If you agree to it, the participation of your organisation will be acknowledged in this paper.
You need to have Java Script installed to complete the questionnaire (free of charge under: http://www.java.com/de/download/).
Completing the questionnaire takes approximately 10 minutes. Please fill in the questionnaire by Tuesday 15th May 2012.

Thank you very much!
