In the first section of the study, you will be required to watch a video of a healthcare professional giving you a medical advice.

After completing the study, you will be directed to a page where you will see the email address of the principal investigator for any further questions you may wish to ask and you will receive a link to the debrief document.
As a participant involved in the study your responses will be anonymized so that there will be no chance of identifying your responses and your participation will remain confidential at all times. You also have the right to withdraw or withhold any information at any point up until the point of publication, without any penalty. There are no known expected discomforts, no “disguised” procedures or unnecessary deception, or risks through participation in this study.
This study will contribute towards much needed research in the patient/client and healthcare professional relationship and it is anticipated that the findings from this research will inform future practice.
