Last year we asked you to complete an online survey, the results of which helped shape our strategy for 2016.
Based on your feedback, in 2016 we invested in our public information forums and hosted events in Melbourne, Townsville and Adelaide. We launched our new website and established an online support group platform to address geographical issues faced by many. Our closed Facebook support group is a place to ask questions and seek advice in a supportive environment. Our focus on supporting those affected by melanoma remains paramount and to that end we increased the capacity of our counselling service.
In 2017 we will continue to increase support options available to our members with telephone support groups commencing in April. We will host public information forums in Cairns, Sydney, Brisbane and Canberra. The Survivor Stories part of our website will be redesigned and further updated this year and we are working on an online information tool to assist people in their understanding of melanoma. We look forward to sharing this with you in due course.
MPA is committed to evolving in line with the needs of the melanoma community and as such we would like to ask you to help us by completing our online survey which should take no more than 10 minutes, but it is that effort which helps inform future projects to benefit all those affected by melanoma. Please click here to get started.
The closing date for the survey is Thursday 27th April and if you wish to include your email address a $50 Coles Myer voucher will awarded to a randomly selected winner who will be notified on Friday 28th April. All responses will, of course, be strictly confidential.
