To further our mission, we are conducting a Community Needs Assessment Survey to help us better understand the needs of our patients, their families and caregivers, and the community in general as they relate to care and treatment of cancer, caregiver support services, and general treatment resources.
Community input is invaluable in enabling us to shape the care and services we provide to best meet the needs of the Greater Waterbury community. For example, based on the results of our last Community Needs Assessment Survey in 2015, we adjusted the times of some of our support groups based on when survey respondents were most likely to be available to attend, which resulted in a sharp increase in the number of participants in those groups.
“At the Leever Cancer Center, one of the values we live by is our belief in partnership and collaboration in cancer care, and the importance of empowering patients, families, and the community,” said Kevin Kniery, Executive Director of The Harold Leever Regional Cancer Center. “Our Community Needs Assessment Survey is one of our most helpful tools in learning how we can improve the care, support, and resources we provide to the Greater Waterbury community we call home.”
Everyone is welcome and encouraged to take the survey, even those who have never used the services of the Leever Cancer Center. While you may take the survey anonymously, those who provide their name, email, and phone number will be entered to win an Amazon gift card.
