Event details

Digital interventions are increasingly being evaluated online, offering the advantage of ease of access to large numbers of participants, the facility for automated randomization, automated reminders and automated data collection, and facility for blind allocation to intervention or control.

 Digital interventions are increasingly being evaluated online, offering the advantage of ease of access to large numbers of participants, the facility for automated randomization, automated reminders and automated data collection, and facility for blind allocation to intervention or control. However, there are concerns over repeat registration to obtain incentives, the quality of self-reported data, and potential high drop-out from online trials.

 In this presentation, Dr Julia Bailey will give an overview of the development of the Sexunzipped website for sexual health promotion, discuss the validity of the online data collected, the success of offering different levels of incentive and of requesting urine samples by post, and discuss participants' views of participating in sexual health research online.
