Evidence-Based Practice in Complementary Medicine [EPICENTRE] Project
RE: Invitation to participate in the Evidence-Based Practice in Complementary Medicine [EPICENTRE] Project
We would like to invite you to participate in a brief anonymous survey about evidence-based practice in Naturopathy. Before you decide to participate, it is important for you to understand why the research is being done and what it will involve. Please take the time to read the following information and discuss it with others if you wish. You are also free to email the principal researcher if there is anything that is not clear, or if you would like further information.
What is the purpose of the study?
The purpose of this study is to explore Naturopath’s attitudes, skills and use of evidence-based practice (EBP), as well as the barriers and enablers of EBP uptake. This study is being conducted by researchers in the University of South Australia, in collaboration with ASNFD/SvNED/ASNDF/SANFD.
Why have I been invited?
You have been invited to participate in this study as you are a Naturopath practicing in Switzerland.
Do I have to take part?
No. It is your decision whether to take part in this study or not. Whether you participate or not, this will not affect your position or relationship with the University of South Australia, the research team, or ASNFD/SvNED/ASNDF/SANFD, now or in the future. While undertaking the questionnaires you are free to withdraw from the study. However, once you submit your survey we will not be able to remove your response as it will be impossible to identify your individual data.
What do I have to do if I decide to take part?
Participation in this study will involve completing an online questionnaire. The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete and will ask questions about your views on EBP, the use of EBP in your clinical practice, your skills in EBP, and the factors that you believe may aid or hinder the uptake of EBP in your practice. The link to the survey is provided below. A reminder email will be sent after 2 weeks. As a measure of appreciation for your support, you will be eligible to receive a 20% discount on a training course offered through ASNFD.
What are the possible disadvantages and risks of taking part?
There are no risks associated with this study. However, you might feel slightly anxious or stressed about filling in the questionnaire the “wrong way”. There is no correct or incorrect answer to any of the questions since they reflect your personal beliefs and situation. One disadvantage of taking part in the study is giving up a short amount of your time.
What are the possible benefits of taking part?
While there may be no direct benefits to you, you will help in identifying the type of knowledge that informs current Naturopathic practice in Switzerland. This information may be helpful in informing future Naturopathic practice, research and education.
What if there is a problem?
If there are any questions about the study, please contact Dr Matthew Leach on (08) 8302 2413. Any concerns relating to the conduct of this study can be addressed to the Executive Officer of the University of SA Human Research Ethics Committee (tel: +61 8 8302 3118; email: email@example.com). Please note, this study has been approved by the University of South Australia’s Human Research Ethics Committee.
Will my taking part in the study remain confidential?
Yes. All personal information will remain confidential, and the data obtained will not be used for any other purpose except for this study, unless required by law. The online survey is also intended to be anonymous. The researcher will take every care to keep data confidential. Survey results will be stored on the survey platform and the manager may have access to that data. However, since data collected is anonymous, the platform manager will not be able to identify participants. As soon as practical after data collection is complete, the researcher will delete the data from the online platform.
To comply with National ethics guidelines, all data will be stored on a password-protected computer in a secure office in the Department of Rural Health (University of South Australia) and retained for a minimum period of five years. While your responses will be kept confidential by the researcher and will not be individually identified in the reporting of this research, the researcher cannot guarantee the confidentiality or anonymity of material transferred by email or the internet.
What will happen to the results from the study?
Findings from the study may be published in a peer-reviewed journal, disseminated to professional Naturopathic associations, and presented at conferences and research seminars. You can also receive a summary of the research findings when they become available (more details will be provided at the end of the survey).
