A Patient Survey

Thank you for agreeing to participate in our survey. Its objective is to determine the recreational and medicinal cannabis experiences of patients with advanced chronic kidney disease or those on dialysis. We would also like to evaluate your willingness to participate in future studies of cannabis for symptoms related to kidney disease. The survey consists of 15 questions and should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete. We will use the results of this survey (and a physician survey) to determine which symptoms to pursue funding for clinical trials.  We hope that you are able to complete all questions but if you are uncertain or uncomfortable with any question you may skip it and move to the next question. You may change your responses at any time by clicking the previous button at the bottom of every question page. By completing the survey, you are providing informed consent for participation in this research project. All responses are anonymous and it does not collect any personal health information. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact the study’s co-principal investigator Dr. David Collister via email at david.collister@phri.ca

Sincerely,

Dr. David Collister, Dr. Karthik Tennankore, Dr. Ron Wald, Dr. Deborah Zimmerman, Dr. Sara Davison, Dr. Annie-Claire Nadeau-Fredette, Dr. Remi Goupil, Dr. Michael Walsh
