Abstract

OBJECTIVE: The objectives of this study were threefold: to estimate people’s interest in health-related research, to understand to what extent people appreciate being actively informed about current local health-related research and to investigate whether their interest can be influenced by advertising local current health-related research using large TV monitors.

DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial using a stepped wedge design.

SETTING: The emergency department waiting room at two public hospitals in northern Queensland, Australia.

PARTICIPANTS: Waiting patients and their accompanying friends and relatives in the emergency department waiting room not requiring immediate medical attention.

INTERVENTIONS: A TV monitor advertising local current health-related research.

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Odds ratio for the effect of intervention on changing the interest in health-related research compared to a control group while adjusting for gender, age and socioeconomic standard.
