The 2020 HWEI has now closed.
The index submission document is still available (below) for you to use as a gap analysis or to begin your 2021 submission. The index questions will not change, however, we are updating the formatting for ease of reading as well as the evidence and scoring guide for greater clarity. These will be available shortly.
HWEI Submission Document
HWEI Evidence and Scoring Guide
Optional HWEI Employee and Client Surveys
All members of Pride in Health +Wellbeing and those participating in the HWEI (regardless of membership) will be able to participate in the optional HWEI 2021 staff survey and/or HWEI 2021 client survey. As a result of participating, service providers will receive high-level analysis of your organisational responses from a staff or client perspective (individuals are not identified, only the name of the organisation participating), however, you can choose to participate in both, one or neither survey depending on your individual preferences.
To participate in either survey or both, you will need to request a unique URL. While you may request your unique URL at any time, these will not be sent out before November 2020. Once you have received your unique URL, the survey will be immediately available for distribution along with some sample communications that you can utilise/edit.
Client surveys will need to be available to clients in a way that maintains their anonymity and does not risk inadvertent disclosure. A unique URL for your organisation will be sent to you which can be shared with all clients/service users/residents. Alternatively, you may wish to facilitate electronic submission of the survey with your clients through the use of tablets etc.
A final option for printing and distributing hard copy surveys is also available, should you wish to mail out the survey to all your clients. Collection of these hard-copy surveys can be thought an anonymous lockbox within your service, or through a reply paid postage option back to PIHW – please discuss with us how you plan to distribute and collect survey responses from your clients. Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
requesting to participate in one or more surveys
You can request your unique survey URL for participation toward the end of 2020. Please include your company name, key contact name, email and phone number, and email your request to HWEI@prideinhealth.com.au. The Survey URL(s) will be sent out from 1 November 2020.
Surveys will close on Friday 12th March 2021.
A preview draft of the surveys (no responses collected) will be available toward the end of 2020.
