Research Study

Overview of project

We are investigating if online question banks are a useful teaching method for learning about medical sustainability!

We believe that a more integrative approach can bring this often complex topic to life, making it more relatable and understandable.

What is sustainable healthcare?

Sustainable healthcare: focuses on the improvement of health and better delivery of healthcare, rather than late intervention in disease, with resulting benefits to patients and to the environment on which human health depends, thus serving to provide high-quality healthcare now without compromising the ability to meet the health needs of the future

What we expect from you

1. Stage 1: Complete the baseline survey on what you think about Medical Sustainability (don’t worry it’s not a test)

2. Stage 2: Complete 15 SBA questions on “Sustainability” in our Qbank

3. Stage 3: Complete a follow-up survey on Medical Sustainability.

That’s it!

Involvement in this study will take between 1 to 2 hours.

We require this to be completed within two weeks of being granted access to the site; otherwise, your access will be allocated to another user.

What’s in it for me?

You will gain 1 year free membership to OSCEstop.

Additionally, you will also gain knowledge about medical sustainability which may feature in the new MLA exam.

What is the inclusion criteria?

You must:
– Be a Medical Student at a UK Medical School
– Be over the age of 18

Do I have to take part?

Participation in this study is entirely voluntary.

It’s completely up to you to decide whether or not you take part.

Even if you initially agree to participate, you are free to withdraw at any time and without giving a reason.

If you do decide not to take part we will reallocate your access to another user.

Will my data be identifiable?

No, your data will not be identifiable.

While we will collect responses to surveys and questions, all data will be anonymised.

This means your responses will be detached from any identifiable information. All data analysis will be performed on an aggregated group level, meaning individual responses will not be singled out. Your personal information and responses will remain confidential throughout the study and in any resulting publications or presentations.

What’s the catch?

There’s no catch.

But you will need to complete all 3 stages within 2 weeks of entering the study.

Our funders have provided you access to the platform for one year, and as such, we require your commitment to complete the project. We recommend that you complete the study as soon as you gain access to the site.

You will need to complete all 3 stages:

1) Pre-questionnaire

2) 15 SBA questions in our Qbank on Sustainability

3) Post-questionnaire

We expect your involvement to take between 1 to 2 hours.

Once you complete your involvement you will have access to OSCEstop for free for once year.
