      Invitation to Participate in a Research Study Interview

      Help improve the quality of online cancer resources

      Macquarie University and Melanoma Network of Canada are conducting a study to explore features indicating quality of cancer-related online resources. The quality factors include an assessment of the content, design, and credibility of these online resources.

      The purpose of the interviews is to understand what features indicate quality of cancer-related online resources from the perceptions of users (cancer-affected people).
      The study is being conducted to meet the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy under the supervision of Associate Professors Yvette Blount and Michael Quilter, Department of Accounting and Corporate Governance, Macquarie Business School.

      How to Participate

      If you decide to participate, you will be asked to answer questions related to the features indicating quality of cancer-related online resources. The interview is anticipated to take between 30-45 minutes. If you agree, we will audio record the interview.
