IRB Protocol 2005B0171 RN version 2



Researchers with the Departments of Human Nutrition at The Ohio State University and Food Science and Human Nutrition at Colorado State University are seeking Registered Nurses who are currently employed to provide service to pregnant women, elderly patients, and/or immune-compromised patients due to cancer, HIV/AIDS, diabetes or other diseases. To participate in this survey, you must be at least 18 years of age.

The purpose of the study is to better understand the food safety information provided, methods used to deliver that information, and continuing educational needs of Registered Nurses who provide food safety information to members of population groups at high risk for listeriosis (foodborne illness caused by the pathogen, Listeria monocytogenes).

Time Involved: The survey will take between 10 and 15 minutes to complete.

As a thank you for participation in this survey you will be given a user name and pass code for an on-line continuing education program, “Food Safety for High Risk Populations.” In this program, you can choose to earn from 1 to 6 hours of continuing education credit from the Ohio Nurses Association (reciprocity to other state nursing associations). The monetary value of this incentive is $60.00.
