All records will be kept confidential to the extent permitted by law. Your responses and email address (if you choose to provide it) will be stored electronically in secure, password-protected systems at the New York State Psychiatric Institute. Your name and other personal identifying information will not be collected. Records will only be available to research staff, and Federal, State, and Institutional regulatory personnel who may review the records as part of routine audits.
At the end of the study, all participants will have the chance to be entered into a raffle to receive a $100 Amazon gift card.
In Case of Injury
Federal regulations require that we inform you about our institution's policy with regard to compensation and payment for treatment of research-related injuries. If you believe that you have sustained an injury as a result of participating in a research study, you may contact the Principal Investigator at (646) 774-8118 so that you can review the matter and identify the medical resources that may be available to you.
Please feel free to contact the Principal Investigator, Dr. Kayser, at (646) 774-8118 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any additional questions. Take as long as you need to decide whether or not to participate in the study. If you have any questions about your rights as a research participant, want to provide feedback, or have a complaint, you may call the NYSPI Institutional Review Board (IRB - a committee that protects the rights of human subjects in research studies). You may call the IRB Office at (646) 774-7155 during regular office hours.
