Many thanks, this is an interesting survey. Do we know who is behind it, and do we know what they intend to do with the data from it?

Hi Paul

This is part of the Cherub research group (sorry about the name). They have been running for a couple of years and are doing very exciting cure-related work. I am on the steering committee and Damian is the community rep for individual studies. The survey had quite a lot of community input. These results are being used to inform researchers about the range of acceptable risks from a hopefully diverse group of potential study participants.

I think the survey is well designed and could produce interesting results - it is quick to fill in and there is a 50 voucher draw at the end.

Thanks to Juliet for posting this.

I gave up on it when I found a mistake in the scale on question A7 ...

It's shame you gave up rather than continue and then add this as a comment at the end.

I see the typo though and I will pass on your comment so it can be fixed. I also made a couple of late suggestions when I filled it in, which were clarified the next day.

The CAB is one of the first groups that this has been sent to, so if anyone else notices anything similar, please let me know.

Simon,
It's not exactly a typo - the scales are all wrong which totally invalidates the data. I abandoned it so that I could do it when this would be fixed so that I could contribute to a valid piece of research. I tried again just now but the scales are still wrong. As soon as it is fixed I will be more than happy to fill in the questionnaire again and promote it to other people.

Best,

Peter.

Dear Peter and Simon,

I found it useful to fill out this questionnaire. As an individual it helped focus my mind on what I'd want for the outcome. And it also made me think about under what circumstances (side effects) I'd take part in a trial myself. The survey has given me a more focused point of view, whatever I may think about the scales.

Best wishes,
Roy
