Musculoskeletal Injuries Related to the Care of Obese Patients
INFORMATION SHEET FOR PARTICIPATION IN RESEARCH STUDY
THE RISE OF OBESE PATIENTS AND THE EFFECT ON NURSING STAFF
We are asking you to be in a research study because we are trying to learn more about musculoskeletal injuries acquired by nursing staff that may be caused by lifting or handling overweight and obese patients. This study will take about 10 minutes of your time. If you agree to be in this study, you will be asked to enter your age and gender, as well as answer 15 multiple choice and open ended questions about your injury. You can choose not to participate. There will be no negative consequences if you decide not to participate or change your mind later.
If you have questions about this study, please contact Amanda Schneider at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions about your rights as a research subject, you may contact Susan Loess-Perez, DePaul University’s Director of Research Protections at 312-362-7593 or by email at email@example.com.
