Hello all!

Andrea Funk with The Clinical and Patient Educators Association (a not-for-profit organization - has asked for our help with a survey they are conducting. The purpose of their survey is to identify the gaps in communication between healthcare practitioners (HPC) and their patients. They are interested in learning more about the medication(s) you currently take for your condition and your relationship with your healthcare practitioner regarding the management of your medication(s). If you are interested in participating (it takes about 5 minutes and is completely anonymous), the link is We have approved this survey but let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Lots of things missing from this survey. My biggest thing was that it centered on Diabetes, but alot of us have other issues also that are cause and/or effect, and there wasn't anyplace to put thoose.

Thank you for taking your time to complete it and for your honest feedback. I will pass this along to CPEA to help them with their research and hopefully to let them know they need to give more options for their surveys in the future.

Thank you for letting us know that this was approved.

I finished this survey and found it rather lacking.

They obviously did not care for those of us PWDs who manage their diabetes through meal planning and exercise. I guess that is because they were only focused on medications.

I think they were only focused on medications for this particular survey, but I still appreciate your taking your time to fill it out.
