The community canteen services can improve older adults’ satisfaction with life and diet, and mental health status and enrich their social capital, but this still needs to be future evidenced. To examine the influence of canteen services on participants’ mental health, we plan to conduct a survey. Specifically, we will distribute questionnaires to all canteen beneficiaries and some others who never use such a service. In this way, those who do not receive canteen service can be a control group. So, is this an experimental design?

Thank you for contacting us. Both experimental and quasi-experimental designs have control groups. Please note that the key to experimental design is the randomization of participants. In your case, it is a quasi-experimental design.

Following the previous question, could you please also introduce a bit more about the specific projects included in the employment service for ex-offenders by SRACP?

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?
