Exploring Information and Knowledge Needs and Preferences

We are interested in connecting with all our stakeholders to learn about your knowledge and information needs as they pertain to PTSD and related mental health conditions.

Please complete the survey to tell us what information you want to know, how you want to learn about it, and how you would like to use it to inform your work and life. We will use your responses to help ensure our ongoing research and information-sharing work is aligned with, and responsive to, your needs and preferences.


The Centre of Excellence (CoE) on PTSD wants to identify and prioritize research gaps and knowledge/information needs on the topic of PTSD and related mental health conditions that are specific to Veterans and their Families/supporters.

This information will help align the CoE’s ongoing research and knowledge mobilization work with stakeholder needs and preferences.

Purpose of Survey

This brief survey is focussed specifically on the knowledge/information needs of CoE stakeholders, including Veterans, their Families/supporters, researchers, and service providers.

You will be asked to share:

  • Your knowledge/information needs about PTSD and related mental health conditions (for both Veterans and Veteran Families/supporters),
  • Your preferred ways of having those needs met,
  • The ways in which you use, or would like to use knowledge/information.

We understand that many of you bring many perspectives (e.g., service provider, person with lived/living experience of PTSD/related mental health conditions, Veteran, Family member, etc.). We encourage you to speak from any of these perspectives when answering the questions that follow.  If any of the questions are not applicable to you, please leave them blank. 

Thank you for your contribution, and for helping us in our work to improve services and supports for Veterans and their Families.
