ACI Alliance to Support Member Survey Activitie

In an effort to support and advance research activities by our members, ACI Alliance initiated a new service to assist our members to collect information from other CI clinicians and investigators on the CI process, outcomes, access barriers and research needs. Twice every year—in February and in August—we will solicit and electronically distribute surveys that have been submitted by members. We expect this will result in valuable publications as well as presentations at our meetings. 

Future Surveys:

The next round will be published in August 2019. Plan ahead. Long surveys that take more than 10 minutes to complete will have lower response rates.

If you wish to take advantage of this opportunity, send an email with the following information to our executive director Donna Sorkin ( by February 18, 2019. Your email should include the following information about the survey that you wish for us to publish:
