Online Survey: Using digital technologies to take part in research
Are you member of the public with experience of using digital technologies such as smart phones, tablets and online materials to participate in health research?
Or would you have concerns about using these technologies in health research if you were asked?
If so, the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Network would like to hear from you.
They would like to understand from patients and public as well as researchers how these digital technologies are currently being used in health research through an online survey.
The aim of this is to identify ways to move forward with using these technologies more widely so that patients and public can more easily participate in research, and to improve the speed with which clinical research takes place. This means good timely evidence can be produced to improve understanding of the best approaches to patient care in the NHS.
In everyday life we are increasingly digitally enabled. NIHR have therefore set up the eStudy project and developed a survey to find out from the public about any experience they may have had using these technologies in health research.
The eStudy project is part of the NIHR Clinical Research Network's Accelerating Digital Programme.
The survey will be available online until 9th December 2016.
