Dear Resident Doctors of British Columbia,
We are conducting a survey to explore the knowledge, attitudes, and practices of resident doctors in BC around the topic of professionalism during personal social media use. We would greatly appreciate your input through the completion of our survey, which should only take approximately 15 minutes.
This survey will be the first part of a two-part study, whereby the second half will involve volunteer focus groups for discussion on themes identified in the questionnaire. We invite you, therefore, to offer your optional contact information at the end of the questionnaire to participate in the focus groups that will be held this Fall.
Eligible participants for the study include all current resident doctors in BC. By completing the questionnaire, you will consent to participate in this study.
If you have any questions about the survey, please contact the lead resident of the study, Dr. Ben Huang, at Benjamin.email@example.com. The primary investigator for the study is Dr. Kendall Ho.
If you have any concerns or complaints about your rights as a research participant and/or your experiences while participating in this study, contact the Research Participant Complaint Line in the UBC Office of Research Ethics at 604-822-8598 or if long distance e-mail RSIL@ors.ubc.ca or call toll free 1-877-822-8598.
Thank you very much!
