A Survey Questionnaire on Collecting Menstrual Cycle Information During Autopsy Practice

The Mental Health Research Group at the University of Otago, New Zealand, is conducting a survey that is focused on the professional practice of pathologists, specifically pertaining to the collection of menstrual cycle data during autopsies. This is not limited to suicide cases, but rather autopsy practices in general where a menstrual cycle could be present. This survey aims to understand the professional practices and decision-making factors among pathologists. It consists of seven sections: demographics, professional information, reporting, culture, challenges, training, and future perspectives. The survey should take approximately 10 to 30 minutes to complete, depending on responses and level of detail. Participation in this survey will remain completely confidential, and all responses will be anonymized to protect privacy. The results of this study will be used solely for research purposes, and no personal information will be disclosed.
