Why is this research being done? With the evolution of artificial intelligence (AI) in health and medicine combined with many unknowns, it is very important that we gain an understanding of the opinions, perceptions, insights, and barriers associated with AI. The purpose of this research is to understand the attitudes, applications and concerns among the community and potential patients regarding the rapidly emerging applications of AI in healthcare.

Who can participate? All members of the community.  Taking part in this research is voluntary and your choice.  To participate you will be required to give your consent at the beginning of the online survey. You are free to withdraw from the survey at any point prior to submission at the end of the survey.

What would you be asked to do? If you consent to participate in the study, you will complete a short online survey answering tick box questions about your perceptions towards AI.  The survey can be completed at your leisure in your own time and your responses will only be collected at the end of the survey once you select submit.  

What are the risks & benefits of participating? There are no direct benefits to you as an individual, however, by participating you have an opportunity to voice your perspective on AI.  This will help contribute to a better understanding of the positive and negative implications of implementing AI in healthcare.  There are no identified risks to you as an individual.  The researchers will not be able to identify any individual participant or confirm who has (or has not) submitted a response.

How will your privacy be protected? All information to be collected is anonymised, encrypted and will be de-identified from the beginning.  You are not required to disclose any personal information and data security, privacy and confidentiality will be maintained at all times.  Collected data will not be shared with external parties other than the analysed results being published.

How will the information be used?  The findings from this study will be disseminated through conference presentation and as a manuscript for peer-reviewed journal publication. Findings may also inform the development of future research studies, education resources or policy development.

We appreciate you taking the time to review the information about this study and thank you in advance for completing this short online survey.  If you have any questions or require further information, please contact a member of the research team.
