All research projects publicized by Sherbourne Health and our various programs through our website, social media, by way of posters, or in any other way, must adhere to Sherbourne’s Research Policy.
The purpose of the research policy is to:
We are often approached by external researchers to recruit for study participants in waiting rooms, in groups or on websites. Listing or posting research in our building, on agency websites or in newsletters gives a study the appearance of having been approved by us. To protect our clients, staff and Sherbourne’s reputation, research studies must be reviewed and approved by Sherbourne’s management before being promoted by Sherbourne.
Calls for research participants are only published after we receive the appropriate documentation and the study has been approved for promotion.
The following documents will be provided by the researcher before Sherbourne will promote external research studies:
