Research news: compensation available for study participants

The purpose of this OHTN study is to understand what people in Ontario think about participating in different types of HIV-related health research. See how you can get involved.

Research news:  compensation  available for study participants

Have you participated in HIV research surveys? If you have, why did you choose to get involved. Was it the topic, maybe it was the organization that was doing the research or just because you were receiving an honorarium for doing it?

On the other hand, were you asked to take part in a survey but you declined. If so, why did you decline? Perhaps it was the subject, maybe you felt it wasn’t important enough or you weren’t being paid enough for your time.

These are just some of the questions that the FACBAR (Facilitators and Barriers to Engagement in HIV Health Research) survey is trying to find answers to.

The Ontario HIV Treatment Network) OHTN is currently looking for 1,000 people, 500 HIV positive and 500 HIV negative, from five key population groups to be interviewed for this survey. These key populations include: People who use drugs; Aboriginal people; gay men and/or men who have sex with men; women from marginalized communities; and African Caribbean, and Black (ACB) communities. You must be living in the province of Ontario to participate

The survey takes approximately one hour to complete and you will be compensated in the amount of $40 for your time. If childcare is needed, there is an additional $25 to cover it.

See accompanying poster for the contact information to get involved.
