Mapping uncertainty in internet-based randomised controlled trials: a qualitative synthesis and exploration of participant views and experiences
The social, technological and environmental changes that have taken place in the last decade have implications for the way health research is conducted, however the impact of these technologies on the relationship between health researchers and research participants is less well established. This research will aim to understand how the internet is being used in the conduct of randomised controlled trials; what is known about the methodological, ethical and technological issues, and explore the experiences and views of researchers, trial participants, and the public. It will help ensure that internet-based health research is acceptable and relevant to patients and the public and to facilitate the translation of research findings into practice.
