Participation in this study is entirely voluntary. You can choose not to participate or discontinue participation at any time.
The survey includes three main sections: personal demographics and cancer diagnosis; your knowledge of biomarker testing; and your experience with biomarker testing.
This survey can be completed by the patient and/or by the caregiver on behalf of the patient.
This survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete. Once you complete the questions and submit the survey, your response will be sent directly to the Colorectal Cancer Canada Get Personal Program Manager.
All of your responses to this survey will remain anonymous and cannot be linked to you in any way. Once you submit your completed survey, there will be no way to withdraw your responses from the study because there is no mechanism to identify you.
Study data are returned to the Program Manager in a digital format that does not identify individual responses. The digital, non-identifiable data will be kept by the Program Manager on a password-protected computer. Combined or analyzed, non-identifiable data will be shared with the medical community and the public to increase awareness about this important public health issue.
There are no risks associated with this study. While you will not experience any direct benefit from participation, information collected in this study may benefit others in the future by contributing to our knowledge and understanding of the performance of biomarker testing across provinces and territories in Canada.
If you have any questions regarding the survey or Colorectal Cancer Canada’s Get Personal Program, please contact the Get Personal Program Manager, Maria El Bizri, at firstname.lastname@example.org
