Looking For Participant For An Online Survey Of Cancer Blogs
Survey

Deborah S. Chung, Ph.D. who is Assistant Professor at University of Kentucky School of Journalism and Telecommunications has contacted me about an online survey for cancer patients. This is a study about cancer blog use by cancer patients.

The purpose of this study is to describe characteristics of cancer blog users and their motivations for visiting cancer blogs. In addition, this study hopes to assess behavioral changes after using cancer blogs and to draw associations between everyday use of media and use of cancer blogs.

This study will help cancer information seekers and healthcare providers alike understand how blogs as a new communication tool may potentially help cancer patients seek information and/or communication.

The information collected form this survey will be accessible only to the researchers. No personally identifiable information will be collected, and information will be presented in aggregate form. The survey will be collected on a server with SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) capabilities, which is one of the best providers of Internet security available, but there is always a risk that a third party may intercept the survey answers.

There are no foreseeable risks associated to this study. However, if you feel uncomfortable answering the survey questions, you may choose to skip a question or withdraw from the study at any time.

You may participate in the study by visiting this website. When you access it, participants will get a message regarding the validity of the certificate. Please tell participants to proceed by hitting the continue button.

If you have questions, you may contact the principal investigator, Deborah Chung, at the University of Kentucky, School of Journalism and Telecommunications, 215 Grehan Building, Lexington, KY, 40506, or dchung@uky.edu.
