Have you ever been asked to participate in a clinical trial? Canadian researchers need your feedback! www.bccrin.ca/survey
BCCRIN is conducting a Canadian Clinical Research Participation Survey. Clinical researchers in Canada would like to hear from patients and study volunteers about their experience with clinical trials. Any Canadian who has ever been approached to participate in a clinical trial and either declined, did not qualify or participated is invited to respond. The survey is web-based and completely anonymous. Results from this survey will be used to inform researchers, research sponsors and policymakers to aid in improving study design, clinic operations and research site procedures in order to reduce barriers to research participation and improve the experience for study participants in Canada. These results will be shared with N2 members and various knowledge translations pieces will be made available for your use.
The link to the survey is http://www.bccrin.ca/survey
BCCRIN is seeking your help to post this survey link and the invitation where patients/public can find it. There are materials available for use on your websites, in paper or electronic mailings and social media. French translations of the materials and survey are in progress but not yet available. Materials below have been approved by the UBC Behavioural Research Ethics Board and provided your site is not actively enrolling for this survey, local REB approval may not be required. Please check with your institution regarding which approvals are required to post the survey link.
