How is immigration control impacting the health care sector?



A researcher from Monash University is asking Australian health care professionals and health justice advocates to help her investigate how immigration controls are impacting on the provision of health care within the Australian community by completing a national on-line survey.

No identifying information is being collected and participants are invited to complete the questionnaire on the basis of their own professional experience.

Topics covered include access to health services by visa holders, information exchange between health care providers and immigration authorities, visits to health care providers by immigration officials, and actions taken by health professionals to support patients experiencing immigration problems.

It is not necessary to have knowledge or experience of all of these topics in order to take part in the survey as many questions can be skipped.
