New Participant Consent
If you are participating in the
Matter of Balance national outcomes evaluation, you should
have received the new Participant Consent Forms from Senior
Services of Seattle. Please discard any older consent forms
you still have on hand.
The new consent
form contains two sections:
- The top section gives consent to
our researchers to use information on the first and last
session survey for program evaluation and
- The bottom
section gives consent to U.S. Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention researchers to call participants, 6 months
after they complete the program, to conduct a follow-up
telephone survey. The consent form contains a space for the
participant's phone number.
The CDC is conducting
this survey to understand how well participants of the A
Matter of Balance program retain information and maintain
the behaviors they’ve learned, six months after completing
the program. The survey will ask participants about their
experiences with the program and about their current
knowledge and behaviors related to fall prevention.
Participants’ data will be combined and results will be
provided to the Administration on Aging (AoA) and the local
Frequently-asked questions and
answers about submitting MOB evaluation forms.
