    If you are Canadian and have tried a new drug, please complete this survey. Environics have made a significant donation to keep Bluelight running!

    Enivironics message to you is below:

    Hello

    My name is Sarah Roberton from the research firm Environics in Ottawa. We’re conducting a research study about experiences with new psychoactive substances, or NPS. It's open to any Canadian resident 18 or older who has used a NPS in Canada at any point in the past.

    Health Canada has designed a questionnaire that they intend to use in the future in a range of contexts and we are looking for feedback on the appropriateness, completeness and clarity of the survey instrument. The entire process should take no longer than 30 minutes to complete - there are a few screening questions, followed by the main survey, and then a few follow-up questions about the survey itself: how easy it was to understand and complete, how clearly the terms were explained, etc.

    This study is completely confidential (no identifying information is requested at any time in the survey) and it is being done on behalf of, and funded by, Health Canada. No ethical review is required for this type of research. We have made a substantial donation to Bluelight in recognition of their assistance with this research project. This study begins on the 6th of October 2017 and will run until the end of November.

    The survey can be found here: http://cdn-media.environics.ca/9486_nps/survey/screener

    I can be contacted at sarah.roberton@environics.ca or via the Bluelight private messaging system.

    Thank you for your assistance with this important research project, and we hope to hear from you.

    Thanks for the cash kickback incentive Sarah!
    Canada loves Bluelight...it keeps many alive with amazing harm reduction resources.

    Let's criminalize everything and see how well prohibition works...hmmmm..

    What is the exact amount of your altruistic donation as a % of your bill to Health Canada for your contract.
    Have you thought about donating to INSITE? Heard of it?
    curiously, skeptical.

    I cannot say what % it is of the total contract, I can say that it is a significant donation to our site, helping us remain free of ads, etc. As usual you are free to participate in the research or not, but we do hope that eligible people will consider the research offer, and ideally support it if they can. And let us know any feedback on the survey itself in this thread. Thanks.

    Hello,

    The goal of the questionnaire is to monitor patterns of NPS use, to inform harm reduction strategies. Your comment has been passed on to Health Canada and their response is as follows:

    “Canada’s support for harm reduction as a pillar of the drug strategy and the request that the voice and needs of people with lived and living experience be included into our evidence base are the essential drivers of the development of the current study. I hope you will join your voice with ours.”
    The amount of the donation was determined based on discussions with the Bluelight site administrators.

    Thank you,

    Sarah
