A 10-question online survey (Appendix 1) was developed in consultation with members of the Canadian Society of Hospital Pharmacists (CSHP) Executive Committee for the Infectious Diseases Pharmacy Specialty Network (PSN). The survey was conducted within existing CSHP PSNs between October 15 and October 31, 2008. Eligible participants were members of one or more PSNs, and participation was anonymous and voluntary. The chairperson of each PSN was asked to solicit responses from members of his or her PSN by sending an initial e-mail request and a midpoint e-mail reminder on behalf of the study investigators. Communication to PSN members about the survey was not enforced by the study investigators. Responses were collected and tabulated using a proprietary online survey tool (SurveyMonkey.com). The survey results were analyzed descriptively. levitra plus
