Website Evaluation (www.hepatitiseducation.ca)

0% of survey complete

Completing this survey will allow you the option to enter your name in a draw to win 1 of 20 gift cards (from Safeway, Shoppers Drug Mart, or Tim Horton's) valued at $20.00. The draw is open to all research participants. Only one draw entry is allowed per person.


 
This study will help improve the website as a source for hepatitis C information among people living with or affected by hepatitis C, and health and social care providers. It will also tell us what hepatitis C resources are needed for the future.

You are invited to participate because you:
  • are at least 19 years of age;
  • are able to read, write, and understand English;
  • have not been diagnosed with a condition that affects your memory (e.g., Alzheimer's Disease/Dementia); and
  • have visited the Hepatitis Education Canada website (www.hepatitiseducation.ca) recently.
Taking part in this study is voluntary. Whether you decide to participate or not participate in this survey, the type or amount of health and social care service you receive will not be affected. 

Study Procedure
This anonymous online survey will take about 15-20 minutes to complete. Your responses will be kept private and confidential. The survey will ask you to give some general information about your gender, age range, the province in which you live, and the usefulness and appropriateness of the website as a source for hepatitis C information. You may withdraw from the study at any time by closing your browser or clicking "Exit Survey" without any consequences (doing this will delete all of the information you entered).

Compensation
To thank you for your contribution to the research project, if you live in Canada, you will be given the option to enter your name in a draw to win 1 of 20 gift cards (from Safeway, Shoppers Drug Mart, or Tim Horton's) valued at $20.00.  The draw is open to all research participants. Only one draw entry is allowed per person.
          Once 200 participants have completed the survey or the project ends, whichever comes first, 20 names will be randomly selected amongst those who have entered. If a person cannot be reached within 14 days from the date of the draw, the prize will be awarded to another name that is randomly selected and so on until all prizes have been awarded. The odds of winning a prize are 1 in 9 or less, depending on the number of entrants. The prize must be accepted as awarded or forfeited and cannot be redeemed for cash.

          To enter the draw, after the survey, you will be able to provide your contact information in a form separate from the survey. The name you provide when you enter the draw is collected for the purposes of contacting you if your name is selected in the draw. Your name and the contact information you provide will be kept confidential and then destroyed once the prizes have been awarded unless you consent to be contacted for future research on hepatitis.
          We reserve the right to cancel the draw or cancel the awarding of the prize if the integrity of the draw or the research or the confidentiality of participants is compromised. The draw is governed by the applicable laws of Canada.

Future Contact

In the same form as the draw entry, you will be asked if you are interested in being contacted about new resources, further evaluation opportunities and/or further research studies. Please check off which notifications you would like to receive. Your name and the contact information you provide will be kept confidential and then destroyed if you choose to unsubscribe.

Privacy Statement
Survey responses are anonymous; your name will not be associated with survey data files, project findings, and publication(s).  Only the research team will have access to the survey responses; the responses will be stored in a password-protected UBC FluidSurveys account on a Canadian-hosted server so all information will remain in Canada. Electronic files will be password-protected and will be erased using appropriate file deletion software at the project end-date.
