A Study into Sarcoid Treatment

Postby RVNBSc » Sat Feb 01, 2014 8:04 pm

My Name is Hayley Rich; I am a 4th year BSc Veterinary Nurse. I am inviting you to participate in a research study titled “Owner Perception in the Topical Treatment of Sarcoids: Liverpool Creams Versus Toothpaste”. This study is being conducted as part of the final year of a BSc in Veterinary Nursing at The Royal Veterinary College.

In this study, you will be asked to complete an online survey consisting of 3 questions about your horse/pony, 3 questions of diagnosis and placement of the sarcoid(s) and 8-13 questions on treatment options and your opinion on them. The questions are a mixture of yes/no or circle most appropriate.

Your participation in this study is voluntary and you are free to withdraw your participation from this study at any time. The survey should take only 5-10 minutes to complete. There is also a chance to win a £50 Voucher for Robinsons Equestrian by taking part if an email address is provided at the end of the survey.

This survey has been approved by the ethical committee at the Royal Veterinary College. There are no risks associated with participating in this study. The survey collects no identifying information of any respondent. All of the response in the survey will be recorded anonymously. All data collected will be stored according to the Data Protection Act.

While you will not experience any immediate direct benefits from participation, information collected in this study may benefit horses in the future by improving the understanding how effective toothpaste is as a sarcoid treatment and may lead to further study and the potential for new treatments.

If you have any questions regarding the survey or this research project in general, please contact Hayley Rich at [email protected].

By completing and submitting this survey, you are indicating your consent to participate in the study. Your participation is appreciated.
