Department of Family and Community Medicine and St. Michael’s Academic Family Health Team
Research is an important part of the Department of Family and Community Medicine because it helps us to improve your care.
All information we collect in our studies is private and we never share or report any confidential information. For some studies, you may be asked to complete a questionnaire while you are waiting to see your doctor or you might be invited to participate in an interview. You can always choose not to participate in these studies. While we hope that you will participate in these studies, saying ‘no’ to research will not affect your care.
