Let's discover new methods for stroke recovery, together. Join the Stroke Recovery Initiative by taking our Survey.
If you are age 18 or older, have suffered from a stroke, and have ongoing symptoms as a result of the stroke, you are eligible to register.
Please note that while you can help someone fill out the survey if they need assistance, you cannot consent or take the survey without your loved one's knowledge or on his/her behalf.
PLEASE REVIEW THE "CONSENT TO BE CONTACTED FOR FUTURE RESEARCH" DOCUMENT BELOW
NOTE: THIS DOCUMENT CONTAINS INFORMATION ABOUT CONSENT FOR THE STROKE SURVEY AND THE STROKE RECOVERY INITIATIVE ONLY. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND CONSENT FOR PARTICIPATION IN A STUDY IS A SEPARATE PROCESS.
You are being asked to complete the Stroke Survey because you have indicated that you are interested in finding out whether you might be a candidate for current or future research studies for stroke. By agreeing to take this survey, you will allow qualified professional study personnel at UCSF to add you to the Stroke Recovery Initiative’s stroke registry and to contact you in the future to ask if you want to participate in stroke-related research studies. You have no obligation to actually participate in any study.
The investigator, Anthony S. Kim, MD, MAS, and the study personnel at the UCSF Department of Neurology have developed this Stroke Survey to help to determine whether people may be eligible to participate in current or future research studies of therapies for stroke. Examples of such interventions include studies of stem cells, physical therapy, electrical stimulation, or robotic therapy. We expect that up to 60,000 people will complete this Stroke Survey and an unknown number of participants may be enrolled in current and future stroke research studies.
The investigator and the study personnel have provided information on this website to explain the stroke registry and any available stroke research studies to you. If you have any questions about the registry, survey, or studies, you may contact the study personnel directly.
If you agree to participate, you will be asked to go to a secure website (http://redcap.ucsf.edu) to complete the Stroke Survey online. The survey asks about your stroke and your medical history, including your medications. It will take about 30 minutes to complete.
We will review your responses and if you meet the initial eligibility criteria for a specific study, we may contact you by email to tell you more about that study and to conduct additional screening to help to determine whether you might be eligible for that specific research study.
We will also store your responses and may use these responses and your contact information to contact you about future research studies related to stroke. You may ask to remove yourself from future contact at any time by contacting us at 1-800-887-1624 or by email at StrokeRecoveryInitiative@ucsf.edu.
Completing this Stroke Survey DOES NOT mean that you have agreed to take part in any research studies for stroke, but does mean that you agree to be contacted to determine whether you MAY be eligible for a study for stroke. There will be a separate enrollment and consent process for the actual research studies.
Some of the questions may make you feel uncomfortable or raise unpleasant memories. You are free to skip any question.
We will do our best to protect the information that we collect from you. The Stroke Survey will include details that directly identify you, such as your name, email address, and telephone number so that we can contact you after we review your responses. Information that identifies you will be kept secure to the degree permitted by the technology we use.
Only a small number of researchers will have direct access to survey responses. If a study based on these responses is published or presented at scientific meetings, names and other information that might identify you will not be used.
There is no direct benefit to you. Your responses will be used for stroke research and you may be contacted about current or future research studies for stroke.
Yes; you do not have to complete this Stroke Survey and completing the survey is NOT required to participate in any research study. Choosing not to complete this survey will not have any effect on your current benefits or any current and future medical care from UCSF.
You will not be paid for completing the survey. There are no costs to you for completing this survey other than any data or Internet fees associated with accessing our website that you may incur from your Internet provider.
You can talk with the study personnel at UCSF about any questions, concerns, or complaints you have about this survey. Contact the UCSF study personnel at 1-800-887-1624 or StrokeRecoveryInitiative@ucsf.edu.
If you wish to ask questions about this Stroke Survey or your rights as a research participant to someone other than the researchers, or if you wish to voice any problems or concerns you may have about the survey, please contact the UCSF Office of the Committee on Human Research at 415-476-1814.
Our study website (http://strokerecoveryinitiative.ucsf.edu) contains additional information about the registry and current studies for stroke. For future research studies, you will be provided with contact information for the specific research study if we contact you at a later date.
PARTICIPATION IN RESEARCH IS VOLUNTARY.
By choosing to take the eligibility survey, you consent to be contacted about current and future research studies for stroke.
We'll remind you in one week to take the survey. Follow these instructions on how to add the reminder to your calendar.
