Ethics and Study information

Qualitative research requires a higher level of ethical consideration and privacy protections than survey research.  We have attached our plan for ethical compliance as an example of the considerations relevant at the time this research was conducted.  We also provide the original documents as given to the participants, a brochure describing the research and the consent form they reviewed and signed before participating.
