Hello! Welcome to the study, The acceptability of fruit and vegetable home delivery for those managing chronic kidney disease. Please carefully read the information below before you click on “OK.”

This research study was developed by Canadian kidney disease doctors and researchers, who want to know what adults with chronic kidney disease (CKD) or their caregivers think about fruit and vegetable home delivery. This study is open to adults (age 18+ years) with CKD, and their caregivers, who live in Canada. This study has been approved University of Manitoba Health Research Ethics Board. We think that this study will take 10-15 minutes to complete. You are not eligible to participate if you are under 18 years, or do not have/care for someone with CKD, and live outside of Canada.

A bit of background
Approximately 13% of Canadian adults have CKD and about 10 to 30% of patients with CKD will experience metabolic acidosis. Some fruits and vegetables can be an effective and well-tolerated therapy for the treatment of metabolic acidosis in CKD. Supplementation with fruits and vegetables can also lead to better blood pressure and lower cholesterol.

This survey will help us understand how Canadian adults with CKD think about fruit and vegetable home delivery to help support dietary change.

What we will do with the information
By completing this survey, it is assumed that you consent to take part. We have no way of identifying who you are, as we never ask your name, phone number, email address, social insurance number or any other information that could possibly identify you. IP addresses will not be tracked.

We will pool, then analyse all of the data from this study. Data will be stored on a secure server at the University of Manitoba for 7 years after the publication of this study. Thereafter, the data will be deleted per UM protocols.

Do I have to participate?
Not at all. You decide if you want to participate or not. If you have read this far and decide to not take part, simply close your browser. No one will know if you have decided to end here.

If you have carefully read this far, and would like to participate, please click on “OK.” We will begin by asking you some basic information, and then move into some content questions. You never have to share your name or contact details with our study team. Please complete the survey in one sitting. It is not possible to save your survey responses and return to complete them later.

Risks associated with this study include fatigue completing the survey, and evoking emotions associated with reflecting on dietary guidance. There are no immediate benefits to participating in this study.
