Do you treat MDS patients?

Please participate in an important survey for healthcare providers with MDS patients

The Aplastic Anemia and MDS International Foundation (AA&MDSIF) is conducting an online research survey. The purpose of the survey is to help us better understand how MDS and the treatments you provide affect your patients' lives. We also want to know about what services and information you provide. Your answers will be used to improve our clinician services and programs.

Your answers will be 100% confidential and will not be connected to you in any way.

The answers you and other health professionals provide will be carefully combined and analyzed to create an overall picture of how MDS and its treatment affect the lives of people with MDS and health care providers involved in the treatment of MDS. Our goal is to identify barriers to completing treatment and improving treatment in the future.  Data collection and analysis will occur in strict compliance with all institutional review board guidelines and policies for research studies. The data will also be reviewed by members of the AA&MDSIF Patient Education Council and Medical Advisory Board to insure full compliance. The findings from this study may be presented or published by the AA&MDSIF and the participating investigators.

What else do you need to know before taking the survey?

  • The survey is being sponsored by the AA&MDSIF.
  • It is open to physicians and nurses with MDS patients in the United States.
  • The survey should take you about 30 minutes to complete.
  • Our goal is for about 100 physicians and 100 nurses to take the survey.
  • The survey is 100% voluntary and anonymous.
  • No personal information will be asked from you at any time within the survey (such as your name, address, doctor’s name, credit card information, etc.).
  • There are no unforeseen risks or benefits to you.

Getting started:
