You are being invited to add your name to a register of people who are interested in being involved in research carried out at the Centre for Health Sciences Research at the University of Salford. Before you decide whether to put your name on the register, it is important for you to understand what this will involve and how your information will be used.
What is the purpose of the register?
Academics from the School of Health Sciences are always looking for people to take part in their research. This often involves people with the diseases we are studying and ‘healthy’ people. We need ‘healthy’ volunteers to compare to the patients so we can identify and understand the patients’ problems more clearly. To help us to contact potential volunteers, we have established a register of people who have expressed an interest in our work.
You have been invited because you are, or have recently taken part in a research project or have responded to an advertisement for people interested in volunteering. To be included in the register you must be aged 18 years or over and willing to provide information about yourself and your condition (if applicable) which will be held on the register.
Do I have to join the register?
No. It is entirely up to you. If you decide to join the register now you can withdraw at any time and without giving a reason.
Please read the ‘Participant Information Sheet’ for more details about registering as a volunteer.
