Dear Lab Tests OnlineAU community,
You are invited to participate in a survey focused on users’ perceptions of the Lab Tests Online Australasia website which we have developed in collaboration with Curtin University. Your feedback will assist us to improve the website and better support the general public’s and health professionals’ understanding about pathology lab tests. This survey should take about 5-7 minutes to complete. Participation is completely voluntary and all the information you provide will be anonymous.

The value of any sort of test can be assessed in two ways; firstly - does the test give the correct answer and secondly - is the test reproducible, in other words, does it give the same answer each time it is used. These are the concepts of accuracy (getting the correct answer) and precision (getting the same answer each time the test is used). These two concepts are not the same as it is possible to consistently get the wrong answer with a test or to get the correct answer but with a broad spread of results.
