INVITATION AND PURPOSE
Your child is being invited to take part in a research study assessing the effectiveness of the Water Safety with Colin and Friends program. This study is being conducted by Kelly S Frindell, PhD, on behalf of Colin’s Hope.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN
Your child will complete a water safety questionnaire 2 times, once at the beginning and once at the end of the program, with the help of a research assistant. It will take approximately 5 minutes to complete the questionnaire, and your child may stop at any time.
You or your child may decide to stop your child’s participation in the research study at any time. You have the right to ask that any data supplied to that point be withdrawn/destroyed. There is no penalty for choosing to withdraw.
BENEFITS AND RISKS
This study poses no known risks to your child. It does not provide any tangible benefits beyond advancing scientific knowledge.
COST, REIMBURSEMENT AND COMPENSATION
Your child’s participation in this study is voluntary. There is no cost to participate, and there is no reimbursement for participation.
The individual data collected will only be seen by members of our research team and will not be linked to any identifying information (e.g., name) that you supply. The data collected may be presented at conferences and in academic publications. However, we will only present data averaged over many participants. Neither your data nor your child’s individual data will be personally identifiable.
