Participate in a study on female sex workers!
A member of the IFMSA-Grenada would appreciate Medsin members participation in a study:
Study Title: Medical students’ knowledge and attitudes toward female sex workers and their occupational risks factors
As a student currently pursuing a degree in medicine, you are invited to participate in a short, web-based survey on medical students’ attitudes toward female sex workers—a population especially vulnerable to sexually transmitted diseases and violence— and knowledge of health risks associated with sex work. The survey consists of short fill-in and multiple choice questions, and should only take approximately 15 minutes of your time. As a medical student activist for acknowledging social determinants of health, I hope you'll take the time to contribute information vital to understanding our attitudes as health care providers.
Please note the following points:
· Survey questions will refer to your educational background, your opinions on female sex workers and knowledge of risk associated with sex work.
· The website, SurveyMonkey.com, is secure and all survey information will be kept confidential.
· Participation in this survey is anonymous, voluntary, and poses no risks to you as a participant.
· Although the survey must be completed in one online session, you are not obligated to answer all questions—if you prefer not to answer, you may select “decline to answer” or “uncertain.”
· If you would like to withdraw from the study, you may exit the survey at any time and your information will be discarded.
While participation may not be of direct personal benefit to you, your cooperation is very important in understanding current knowledge and attitudes among medical students. This information may be used to inform future training programs integrated with social and occupational determinants of health.

Please submit your responses by the closing date, September 30, 2012.
