Participate in research about experiences of menstruation while deployed operationally

Posted on 07 Dec, 2022

The Uni­ver­si­ty of New Eng­land invites you to par­tic­i­pate in a research sur­vey to inves­ti­gate how

women (and peo­ple who men­stru­ate) man­age and expe­ri­ence men­stru­a­tion while deployed


I am seek­ing women (and peo­ple who men­stru­ate) who have roles in the Aus­tralian emergency

man­age­ment sec­tor that place them in oper­a­tional set­tings (includ­ing but not lim­it­ed to fire and

flood sites, emer­gency oper­a­tions cen­tres, evac­u­a­tion cen­tres, search and res­cue, shifts) where

chal­leng­ing sit­u­a­tion­al, phys­i­cal, envi­ron­men­tal and/​or time lim­i­ta­tions may be experienced.

If you have an oper­a­tional role but are not cur­rent­ly men­stru­at­ing (for exam­ple you are preg­nant or

menopausal) you are still wel­come to par­tic­i­pate in the research.

You can par­tic­i­pate in the research by com­plet­ing the sur­vey here:


It should take about 15 min­utes to complete.
