Research

The first round of surveys closed in May 2020 and have been reopened for anyone

who would like to participate.

This survey is being conducted by researchers in the Department of Surgery at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in collaboration with Beyond Clean. The intent of this study is to better understand on a national level the current state of Sterile Processing for those who work in this space.

There are three total surveys on education, economics, and safety that take about 5 minutes each to complete. Participation is voluntary, and participants are able to complete one or all surveys. 

Our overarching goal is to use the data from these surveys to push for vast national-level improvements in salaries, support, education and safety in the SPD space. There is strength in numbers and we thank you for partnering with us in this critical endeavor.
