Would you like to help improve the consent process for research at BC Children’s Hospital? BCCH BioBank is a library to which patients can contribute biological samples and data for research. We are currently developing an online tool/app to improve the way we teach patients about the BioBank and to record their agreement to take part in research. We need advice from families like yours to help improve the app.

We would like to invite you, and any children from your family over the age of 7 years or older to view an online e-consent prototype and complete an anonymous survey. It will take about 10-15 minutes of your time.

Your participation is important to us. It will help shape research enrollment processes here at BC Children’s Hospital, and beyond. We very much hope you will be interested in participating. Your voice matters!

If you would like to participate, please follow the link bto the e-consent prototype and the subsequent survey:

Guest passcode: BioBank

After you complete the survey, you may enter your email for a chance to win 1 of 2 $50 Amazon gift card.

If you have any questions about participating, please contact Ashton Ellis, BC Children’s Hospital BioBank Research Coordinator, by email or by phone at 604.875.2000 ext 7841.

It’s really hard to make changes in health care. When a PVN patient partner says, ‘This is important to us’ it keeps us grounded on why a change is needed and keeps us motivated to keep going on projects.
