You are invited to take part in a research study called: Tumor screening for Lynch syndrome: Perspectives of key stakeholders regarding benefits and barriers. The study involves filling out one online survey which you can access from https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/hru_lynch
You are being invited to take part in this study as a pathology healthcare professional in Canada. A team from Memorial University, St. John's, Newfoundland, would like to describe the number and types of tumor screening programs in Canada or the barriers to implementing such a program. We also want to explore opinions about the uses of screening and informed consent for tumor screening. We think that information like this will help to build acceptable tumor screening programs for patients and their families.
Filling out this survey is voluntary and you are free to leave out any question you do not wish to answer. There are no names attached to the survey so no one will know your answers. Your name will never be reported in any papers or reports prepared from the survey. The survey should take no more than 20-30 minutes. If you have any questions or concerns about the study or would like more information, please feel free to contact the study principal investigator directly. Holly can be reached at:
