Response to Questions About UHS Quality Improvement Survey

 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 10, 2014) -- Last week, the University of Kentucky's University Health Service, distributed via email an Institutional Review Board (IRB)-approved questionnaire to UK students. 

 

The questionnaire is part of a quality improvement project at UHS that includes learning more about LGBTQ college students' utilization of university health centers.  The project's goal is to improve health services and gauge student opinions and impressions on the state of patient care for LGBTQ students at UK's University Health Service.

 

Respondents to the optional survey were assured confidentiality and a disclaimer was provided that some questions may make participants upset or feel uncomfortable and that they may choose not to answer them.

 

The survey was a follow-up survey to one distributed in April 2013 that was used to develop a baseline assessment of perceptions of health care services and attitudes on campus and what LGBTQ and non-LGBTQ students thought about both. 

 

Some questions in the survey have been concerning to individuals. These questions which ask about feelings about sexual identity or orientation are from a validated scale used in peer reviewed journals and used in previous surveys on other campuses.  These questions are used to assess campus climate and diversity of student beliefs and to compare change in beliefs and attitudes about the LGBTQ population among different campuses and over different time periods.
