We’ve all heard that pets are surrendered or discarded every day around the globe. Hong Kong has seen a massive rise in pet ownership. According to a 2017 report by the Veterinary Surgeons Board of Hong Kong, pet ownership surged by 72 percent from 297,100 dogs and cats in 2005-06 to 510,600 in 2015-16. Hence, our team hopes to initiate a pilot pet adoption project and build a pet-friendly community. And we would send questionnaires to residents through the mail. May I ask ways to improve the response rate?

You are doing a meaningful project 😉. There are many ways to improve a survey’s response rate, such as advance notification, incentives.

Could you please give us a clue about how service users apply for the occupational therapy service of SRACP? As we want to evaluate the convenience for applicants to get access to this service.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
