Transparency and governance in drug treatment systems: Online survey


This anonymous survey addresses the topic of transparency and governance in drug treatment systems. It is part of a broader project coordinated by researchers at the University of Vienna and Universitat de Barcelona. In the following section, you will find all the information concerning the purpose of this survey as well as data and safety regulations.

The purposes of this questionnaire survey are:

  • Gather data on trends concerning practices in the provision of drug treatment services that might affect patients’ rights and that could be associated with a lack of transparency and governance in drug treatments

  • Find empirical evidence to complement existing research on mechanisms to strengthen transparency and accountability in drug treatment systems

The estimated time for completion is 15-20 minutes on average. Your feedback is an indispensable contribution to the success of this research.

Structure of the survey:

The survey opens with two general questions to gather statistical information about the respondent’s involvement with drug treatment systems. The following questions can be answered on a five-point Likert scale, with choices ranging from strongly disagree (1) to strongly agree (5). The participants will read a statement and choose the answer within the provided scale. The questions were designed to gather first-hand data from country experts’ experience while avoiding asking about sensitive topics. This was done in an effort to collect more honest responses. The survey wraps up with an open-end question to gather additional commentaries that the participant considers relevant to the research.
