Take 5 minutes to help shape the Royal College
In preparation for the 2023-2026 Strategic Plan, I would like to invite you to share your feedback on our strategic priorities. This plan will build on our guiding framework, inclusive of our vision, mission and values. The strategic priorities, identified through a consultation process, define important themes faced by specialist physicians as we strive to care for our population.
On October 13, 2022, you will receive an email from our external partner, Innovisor, on behalf of the Royal College, with a link to a short survey.
In the survey, we’ll be asking for your feedback on the proposed strategic priorities. We’ll also be asking a few questions to help us understand your networks and communities that will, in turn, help enhance our learning and collaboration.
Your input will be instrumental in guiding our work and helping us better serve you.
I hope you will take five minutes of your time to complete this important survey. We expect to share the findings in the coming weeks as we move forward with our strategic planning process.
If you have questions about this survey, browse our frequently asked questions or contact firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have not received the survey link by end of day tomorrow, please send an email to email@example.com.
I look forward to hearing your ideas and perspectives.
Susan D. Moffatt-Bruce, MD, FRCSC, PhD, MBA, FACS
Chief Executive Officer
Frequently asked questions
Q: What is a “member network” and why do you want to know about these networks?
A: Most people, when asked, are able to identify the individuals around them who influence their work either through expertise or through sharing energy. We refer to these connections as networks and recognize that networks, when brought together, contain many insights. Understanding our members’ networks can be used in several ways to improve our work at the Royal College. In this case, reaching out to members will be used to validate the strategic priorities and map informal networks within the Royal College to enable fast and successful change adoption.
Q: Why do you want to know more about my networks?
A: Networks contain many insights about the Royal College member community which can be used in several ways to enhance our communications, learning and collaboration. In this case, this information will be used to ensure the Royal College is a partner in practice, and all voices are included in the new strategic direction.
Q: When can I share my input via the survey?
A: We collect your input and that of all other Royal College members from Thursday, October 13 at 10 a.m. ET until Thursday, October 20 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
Q: How long does it take to share my input?
A: The survey is short and focused. It should take approximately 4 to 5 minutes to share your input.
Q: Can the data I share be misused by the Royal College?
A: No. The company assisting us, Innovisor, takes privacy and business ethics very seriously. Innovisor identifies groups of people not based on self-assessment but based on input from others through positive peer recognition. Innovisor never shows data that can reflect negatively on an individual. Groups with less than ten people are not reported on, to further safeguard your anonymity.
Q: When can I expect to see actions based on the input shared?
A: We expect to share findings from the survey in the coming weeks as we move forward with our strategic planning process.
Q: Will any of my fellow members or Royal College employees know what I responded?
A: No. The company assisting us, Innovisor, is the data processor. Nobody outside Innovisor will have access to see individual responses, or whether or not an individual has completed the survey at all. It is entirely confidential.
