Research Participation Invitation

Are you interested in contributing to a better understanding of what faecal egg count (FEC) users think about FEC methods?

My name is Nicole, I am a student researcher currently undertaking my PhD at Swinburne University of Technology in Hawthorn, Victoria.  As part of my PhD thesis, I am conducting an online survey of people who request or perform FEC testing on animals.

The project is entitled, 'An investigation into the current perception of faecal egg count (FEC) methods' and aims to develop an understanding of what FEC users think of current FEC practices, and what they would like to see changed.

As this study may be of interest to you and your customers/staff/members, I am asking you to consider distributing the link to my survey (found in the box below) by email, copying and pasting it to your website, social media page or any other relevant publication (e.g. newsletter).

Do you request or conduct faecal egg count (FEC) testing? Complete this short survey and help us gain a better understanding of what users think about FEC testing.
