Student Drug Use Survey - Fieldwork Assistants Required

The Cayman Islands Student Drug Use Survey (CISDUS) 2014 CYCLE 7, Fieldwork Assistants Required

Over the past 14 years the National Drug Council (NDC) has conducted the Cayman Islands Student Drug Use Survey (CISDUS). The NDC is preparing to conduct Cycle seven (7) of the CISDUS scheduled to take place from April 28th through May 9th 2014.

The Cayman Islands Student Drug Survey (CISDUS) is an ongoing study of the behaviours, attitudes and values of high school students. These studies describe the extent and patterns of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs used among students in grades 7 to 12/13 across the Islands and contribute to a better understanding of both current and changing rates of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs of abuse.  Information about alcohol, tobacco and other drugs of abuse as well as prevalence rates is usually gathered through epidemiological surveys, as the Cayman Islands Student Drug Use Survey.

Are you interested and able to volunteer?

Community involvement is essential in the administration of this survey and we are in need of fieldwork assistants. Ideally, we require approximately 80 fieldwork assistants to enable us to collect the data efficiently and in accordance with best practices. Training will be provided for all volunteers. Individuals interested will be required to volunteer approximately 1 hours during the weeks of April 28th through May 9th 2014.

Please contact us on info@ndc.ky or call 949-9000 for further information on the dates and times of training sessions.
