As a benefit of CAG membership, we are pleased to offer the service of posting surveys from members with the goal of assisting with distribution and response levels. Please note that the CAG is not responsible for the content contained within, nor the development process taken, in designing and developing these surveys (including ensuring that proper ethical protocols have been followed). All surveys are, however, reviewed briefly by the CAG office and Practice Affairs Chair to ensure the following:

  • Survey should be focused on a key topic addressing significant variations in practice.
  • Survey may not be branded with the CAG logo, unless it has been developed by an internal CAG Committee.
  • Survey should not be prohibitively long in length (nor duration of time to fill out) – will most definitely limit response rate.


In order to move forward with your survey request we will need:

  • One member of the survey submission team to be a CAG member
  • Survey Title
  • Word/PDF document version of the survey for review (committee might take a few weeks)
  • Link(s) to the survey
  • Estimated time to complete the survey
  • Close date of the survey


Please provide 3 or more weeks to have the survey request reviewed and posted.
