University of Kentucky: Kinship Care in Kentucky Survey

Kinship Care in Kentucky Survey

You can access the survey here:

Researchers at the University of Kentucky are inviting you to take part in an anonymous survey about kinship care. We are interested in your thoughts and opinions, no matter how much or how little you know about the topic. You must live in Kentucky and be 18 years of age or older to take part in the survey. Although you may not get personal benefit from taking part in this research study, your responses will help us understand more about views on kinship care and Kentuckians' understanding of kinship care. Some volunteers experience satisfaction from knowing they have contributed to research that may possibly benefit others in the future.

Those participating in the survey will be eligible to enter a drawing to win a $500 prize. There is a 1 in 1,000 chance of winning the prize. After taking the survey, you will be directed to a different page, separate from this survey, to let us know if you want to enter the drawing.

The survey will take about 10 minutes to complete.

There are no known risks to participating in this study.

Your response to the survey is anonymous which means no names will appear or be used on research documents, or be used in presentations or publications. The research team will not know that any information provided came from you. You will remain anonymous and the research team will not know you participated in the survey, unless you enter for the chance to win $500. However, your information will remain confidential, even if you enter for a chance to win $500.

Please be aware, while we make every effort to safeguard your data once received from the online survey/data gathering company, given the nature of online surveys, as with anything involving the Internet, we can never guarantee the confidentiality of the data while still on the survey/data gathering company’s servers, or while en route to either them or us. It is also possible the raw data collected for research purposes may be used for marketing or reporting purposes by the survey/data gathering company after the research is concluded, depending on the company’s Terms of Service and Privacy policies.

We hope to receive completed surveys from about 1,000 people, so your answers are important to us. Of course, you have a choice about whether or not to complete the survey, but if you do participate, you are free to skip any questions or discontinue at any time.

If you have questions about the study, please feel free to ask; my contact information is given below. If you have complaints, suggestions, or questions about your rights as a research volunteer, contact the staff in the University of Kentucky Office of Research Integrity at 859-257-9428 or toll-free at 1-866-400-9428.

Thank you in advance for your assistance with this important project. To ensure your responses/opinions will be included, please take the survey as soon as possible.
