We often ask our ICR-CTSU trial participants to complete questionnaires to find out about the treatments we’re investigating from their perspective. These are known as patient reported outcomes. At the moment we collect these questionnaires on paper but we would like to introduce the option of online completion. We are currently conducting research to explore the best approach to introducing electronic questionnaires and investigate what effect, if any, electronic collection has on the data provided.
