* 1. Survey overview:

You are invited to take part in a quality improvement project being implemented by the TBRHSC Research Ethics Office. The survey will take about 20 minutes of your time to complete. You are being asked to fill out this survey because you have recently participated in health research at Thunder Bay Health Sciences Centre. Participation in health research might involve being part of a clinical trial, a study on chronic illness or some other health condition, or another kind of health study. If you have been involved in more than one research project, please think of your most recent experience. This survey is designed to find out about your experiences as a research participant. This information will help health researchers and research institutions to assess and improve their interactions with research participants. The questions in this survey are presented in five different sections including:

Section 1. Your experiences before agreeing to take part in the research
Section 2. Your experiences during the research
Section 3. Your experiences after research participation
Section 4. Survey evaluation questions
