Medical Directors:  Take a short survey and support the Foundation

Investigators at Insight Therapeutics, LLC are conducting a survey of medical directors of nursing homes to gather information on the identification and management of influenza outbreaks in nursing homes. The survey will be conducted in collaboration with The Foundation for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine (also referred to as AMDA) who will distribute the survey link we developed through the use of their membership database. For each survey completed, we will provide a payment of $25 to The Foundation.  We plan to survey 100 individual medical directors.  We will not capture any Protected Health Information or digital identifiers with the survey.
