CHANT: Climate and Health Tool

Health professionals around the world are invited to take the CHANT: Climate and Health Tool each year.

The Climate and Health Tool (CHANT) is a 10-minute survey asking respondents about awareness, motivation, and behaviors related to climate change and health. The items were developed in 2017 based on interviews with numerous content experts. It was psychometrically analyzed in 2018. The tool began with a focus on the world’s largest health profession, nurses, and starting with the 2020 version, the survey is open to all health professionals..

The survey is open continuously, and results will be analyzed regularly to learn how respondents’ perceptions and behaviors are changing over time. The survey is anonymous and voluntary. It is available for health professionals in any part of the nation or world. It has been used by investigators in twenty nations and translated into ten languages. We ask that each of you take the survey annually, and please share with others.

A word to faculty, researchers and graduate students:
It is possible to use the tool in studies, projects, or capstones. A specific testing episode can be developed for your use. Investigators can download participant responses for them to analyze.
