A Message from LGBTQIA Health and Health Disparities Research Interest Group and Pace University

You are invited to participate in Collecting Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) Data in Nursing Research Study: Current Practice and Barriers to Implementation. This research study is designed by Pace University Office of Research and members of the LGBTQIA Health and Health Disparities Research Interest Group of ENRS.  Participation is completely voluntary. Please read the information below and ask questions about anything that you do not understand.  A researcher listed below will be available to answer your questions.


Introduction and Purpose

My name is Dr. Martha J. Greenberg. I am a faculty member at Pace University in the College of Health Professions, Lienhard School of Nursing, and Department of Undergraduate Nursing Studies. I would like to invite you to take part in my research study, which concerns the utilization and barriers to utilization of Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity categories that nursing and other health science researchers commonly use as part of the demographic data in their research projects, Quality Improvement (QI) and Evidence Based Practice (EBP) studies.

 

Procedures

If you agree to participate in my research, I will ask you to complete the online survey/ questionnaire. The survey will involve questions about Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) categories that nursing and other health science researchers commonly use as part of the demographic data in their research project and should take about 10-15 minutes to complete.

 

Benefits

There is no direct benefit to you from taking part in this study. It is hoped that the research will raise professional and scientific awareness of SOGI categories in research; and the possibility of increased use of SOGI categories in the participants research studies. Findings of this study will help inform a “SOGI in Nursing Research” training that is tailored for ENRS membership. This knowledge will help nurses measure SOGI and take steps to address the health care needs of the LGBTQ community and improve health equity for this population.

 

Risks/Discomforts

Some of the research questions may make you uncomfortable or upset. You are free to decline to answer any questions you do not wish to, or to stop participating at any time. There are no foreseen risks to the subjects. As with all research, there is a chance that confidentiality could be compromised; however, we are taking precautions to minimize this risk.

 

Confidentiality

Your study data will be handled as confidentially as possible. If results of this study are published or presented, individual names and other personally identifiable information will not be used. To minimize the risks to confidentiality, the following measures are in place:

  1. Participants will be encouraged to complete the survey over a secure internet connection
  2. Data will only be accessed over a secure connection
  3. Accessing the survey data on the Qualtrics website will require a password, which will only be known by the research team.
  4. Any electronic files that have been downloaded and contain identifiable information will be password- protected
  5. Any computer or other device (e.g. backup/hard drive) hosting study files will also have password protection to prevent access by unauthorized users

 

When the research is completed, we may save the data for use in future research done by myself or others. We will retain these records for up to 5 years after the study is over. The same measures described above will be taken to protect confidentiality of this study data.

A Message from the Health Services Research RIG


Hello ENRS Members, 

During the 2019 Annual ENRS meeting in Providence, RI, our research team was conducting research examining how ENRS members connect and network with other researchers. It was a very busy annual meeting so we are asking that if you would like to participate to please open this flyer to learn about the study objectives and open the link to the survey in Survey Monkey which appears at the end of the flyer if you wish to participate.

Thank you in advance for considering  participating. 

Best regards, 

Robin Toft Klar, Allison Norful, and Jasmine Travers

This survey will take no more than 10-15 minutes.


A Message from the LGBTQIA Health and Health Disparities RIG


We are collecting data using a survey to examine researchers’ experience collecting sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) data in research studies. As such, researchers may use a variety of questions to capture SOGI data, which can make it difficult to compare findings across studies.  Hence this work will contribute to an improved understanding of SOGI data collection approaches in research studies.

There is no compensation, but the RIG members intend to share the findings and subsequent recommendations with the larger ENRS community. Please click on the link to participate in the study. https://umassboston.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_2rHa9EMBbROkkqF

This survey will take no more than 10 minutes.
