Attitudes and Beliefs Towards Participation in Decentralized Trials Among the Older Population Survey

As our ageing population is growing, so is the importance of seniors in the participation of clinical trials. Researchers at The George Institute for Global Health want to better understand older Australian's attitudes towards taking part in clinical research through their online questionnaire.

Study Purpose/Description

Traditionally, clinical trials – which are research studies to test new medicines or treatments – required participants to visit specific locations or hospitals in person. However, with advancements in technology, there’s a move towards ‘decentralised clinical trials’. This means participants can be involved without always having to travel, using online tools or home-based methods.

Our study wants to understand how older Australians feel about taking part in such trials that use online tools and methods. Would you find it convenient? Are there concerns or challenges you foresee? The feedback provided will help researchers design future trials, making them more inclusive for all ages.

What’s Involved?

Taking part in this study involves completing an online questionnaire which should take approximately ten minutes. The questionnaire is anonymous.

The questionnaire will ask about respondents about their feelings and views concerning participating in a decentralised clinical trial.
