On-line Field-testing Recruitment and information/consent form.


You are invited to take part in the field testing of an On-Line Learning Tool and on-line survey which we will be gathering feedback on the learning content and format of a research project entitled “Improving Health Numeracy in Health Science Students and Professionals Through an Online Instrument” and funded by SSHRC. This study is led by professors Taras Gula (George Brown College) and Miroslav Lovric (McMaster University).  The data will be collected anonymously; it will be used to help us revise and refine the learning content and format of our on-line learning tool (app) so that we can do the best job possible to help students and others improve their health numeracy.

The  follow-up survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.


What choice do I have?
Participation is entirely voluntary. If you decide to participate, you may withdraw any element of the participation by simply closing the browser and without giving a reason.  Once you have submitted your responses for this anonymous survey your answers will be put into a database and will not be identifiable to us. This means that once you have submitted your survey, your responses cannot be withdrawn from the study because I (we) will not be able to identify which responses are yours (i.e. they will not be linked to any identifiable information).

How will the information collected be used?
Feedback collected on the design, the user interface, and learning content of the On-Line Learning Tool will be used to improve the usability refine the conceptualization of the tool.
