How benefits and harms of medical interventions are communicated

Researchers at the University of Oxford are looking for adults aged between 18 and 65 years old to take part in a study on how benefits and harms of medical interventions are communicated.

This new study will look at how communication strategies can be improved and tailored to keep people well informed during medical interventions. 

How evidence is communicated is important; it might influence how people make decisions and how confident they feel in participating in shared decision-making about their health. 

This study will look at three different communication tools, which present information in three different ways. You will be asked to familiarise yourself with one of these tools, and then complete some questionnaires measuring how useful and effective they were. 

Anybody between the ages of 18 and 65 can take part in this study.

If you are interested in taking part, or would like more information about the study, please complete the form below.

By entering your details, you are not committing to take part, but you will be redirected automatically to the study webpage. You will have the opportunity to change your mind at any time.

This research study is NOT funded or organised by Crohn's & Colitis UK and, therefore, we cannot take responsibility for your involvement in the research.
