The European Facility Survey Questionnaire (EFSQ) is a data collection instrument applicable in any European country or in any country worldwide interested in surveying facilities that provide interventions to drug users. The aim of the EFSQ is to collect information from the facilities across drug treatment systems on their administrative characteristics, client utilisation, staffing and quality management, and core interventions, while accounting for their diversity.
A manual on how to carry out a survey of drug treatment facilities with the EFSQ, as well as an electronic version of the EFSQ for a web-based survey using the open source survey software Limesurvey can be found on this page.
This manual provides a simple step-by-step guide on how to carry out a survey of drug treatment facilities using the European Facility Survey Questionnaire (EFSQ) and the important phases and steps to consider before, during and after data collection.
A web-based version of the EFSQ (EFSQ.lss file) has been developed for use with the free, open source online survey package, LimeSurvey (https://www.limesurvey.org). A manual that outlines the simple steps for carrying out a survey of any drug treatment facility with the web-based EFSQ via LimeSurvey is also available for download.
