Abstract
How to make a workplace health promotion questionnaire process applicable, meaningful and sustainable Background In workplace health promotion, a questionnaire could be of great use.

How to make a workplace health promotion questionnaire process applicable, meaningful and sustainable Background In workplace health promotion, a questionnaire could be of great use. Unfortunately, fatigue regarding answering questionnaires has recently become greater than before. An action research approach could be a possible way of increasing employee participation. Aim This study reports an attempt to explore key aspects for participation in, and commitment to, a workplace health promotion questionnaire process. Method The study was conducted at two wards in a Swedish hospital. Data was collected during an action research process. Data were analysed with regard to a framework of questions. Findings The three key aspects for participation in, and commitment to, a workplace health promotion questionnaire process were: an applicable questionnaire, a meaningful questionnaire process and a continuous and sustainable questionnaire process. A structure is presented as practical advice to managers, describing how such a process could be established to be applicable, meaningful and sustainable. Conclusion This study has identified key aspects and prerequisites for questionnaire processes. The prerequisites - share decision-making, involve a core group and follow a structure - are discussed and proposed for managers and workgroups to consider in further workplace health promotion questionnaire processes. Implications for nursing management The key aspects and prerequisites presented could provide a stimulating standpoint or advice, useful for planning and accomplishing workplace questionnaire processes.
