Macquarie University and Cancer Council NSW are doing some follow-up interviews after the recent survey distributed by the Cancer Council Online Community (CCoC).
The purpose of the interviews is to understand the reasons why you post or don’t post in the online community. We want to find out why engaging in the online community is important because we want to ensure the online community is relevant and useful to the community it serves.
The study is being conducted to meet the requirements for the degree of Master of Research under the supervision of Dr. Yvette Blount, Department of Accounting and Corporate Governance, Faculty of Business and Economics.
If you decide to participate, you will be asked to answer questions related to CCoC environmental features, personality characteristics and psychosocial factors. The interview is anticipated to take between 45-60 minutes. The interview will be audio recorded.
Participants must meet the following criteria:
Any information or personal details gathered in the course of the study are confidential, except as required by law. No individual will be identified in any publication of the results. All data collected will be held on Macquarie University’s secured servers. Codes and identifiers will be used when reporting findings and results to protect the confidentiality of participants. The data will be only accessed by the supervisor and the student. A summary of the results of the data can be made available to you on request via email.
Participation in this study is entirely voluntary. You are not obliged to participate and if you decide to participate, you are free to withdraw at any time without having to give a reason and without consequence.
This study has now concluded, thank you to everyone who participated!
A huge thank you to everyone who responded to this research invitation, especially to those that consented to be interviewed.
We had an overwhelming response, as such we've now stopped interviewing.
Thank you again, your insights will go a long way to helping us make our Online Community the best place to be for those affected by cancer
