The under-construction survey, together with interviews involving residents aged 18 years and over, is part of a research project being led by lecturer at Charles Sturt University's (CSU) School of Management and Marketing Dr Jodie Kleinschafer.
The research project, made possible by a CSU COVID-19 research grant of $28,000, is scheduled for completion in October this year.
It is called 'Understanding risk perceptions, knowledge and preventive health behaviour of Australians in rural, regional remote western NSW during the COVID-19 pandemic'.
The research team includes Professor Oliver Burmeister and Gail Fuller from CSU; Teesta Saksena and Dr Alice Munro from the Western NSW Local Health District; Dr Mark Lock from the Western Health Research Network, and Dr Julaine Allan from the University of Wollongong.
"We expect the research findings will lead to the development of targeted and tailored communication campaigns and the refinement of the health sector's emergency response plan..," Dr Kleinschafer said.
