 ​Dear Colleague

The Nursing Services Directorate (NSD) would like to invite you to participate in a survey to explore the needs and expectations of nurses working within the Maltese Public Health Sector.  Your input is vital in helping us to identify and focus on areas, that are truly important to improve and strengthen your overall job experience.

The study includes questions about, work experience as a nurse, job-satisfaction, and support. Some questions will ask you to rate your satisfaction from a scale of 1 to 5 where 1 means least satisfied and 5 mostly satisfied. Your participation will help the Nursing Services Directorate establish and address all potential factors associated with staff satisfaction and job mobility.

Participation is strictly voluntary, and it should take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete the survey. The questionnaire is completely anonymous and so any answers provided will remain completely anonymous. The data is collected by a third party to enhance the anonymity of the process. It would be appreciated if you can complete this survey by Sunday, 19th December 2021.

As a follow-up to this study, we would like to invite you to participate in a focus group that will be held between February and March 2022. The focus group, which should last no longer than one hour, will provide an opportunity for you to share your insight related to your experience and overall job satisfaction of nursing staff. Should you wish to take part in the focus group too please send us an email on: subject: Interest in Focus Group. More background information will be sent to those interested to participate in the focus group.
