Hi my name is Sharon and I am a master’s student in University College Cork, Ireland. I am studying Applied Psychology, as part of my dissertation I am researching people's trust in online health information. This topic is very on trend and website providers, researchers, consumers and practitioners alike are all interested in how trust in this type of information is built and maintained, especially the reasons why people revisit and engage in health information websites. With this information both site providers and consumers can give/access information that will be trusted and so untrustworthy information can become more apparent, which benefits everyone.
In my survey I address the nature of people's trust in websites that they have used, connected with and perhaps participated in. The survey will be an extension to previous research from others in this area. It will be completely anonymous, no identifiable information is taken.
The completion of the study should only take 10-15 minutes. Your participation is voluntary, by clicking this survey you are consenting to participate, however after you have submitted your survey it is not able to be withdrawn.
