Description
Thank you for your interest in taking part in the My Experiences Navigating Daily-life (MEND) research study. The purpose of this study is to get information about how and why people do or do not take HIV post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) (medications to prevent HIV) in the four weeks after a sexual assault.

Your participation will involve taking a survey via an internet-based web-application. Completing this survey means you consent to participate in this study. There are two parts to the survey: a screening section and the main survey. After finishing the screening section, you may or may not be selected to complete the main survey. The main survey will take about 30-45 minutes to complete.

You can complete the survey two ways: (1) anonymously, or (2) you may choose to provide your email address to receive a gift card for your time.

Benefits and risks of participating
Will being in this study help me in any way?

We cannot promise any benefits to you or others from taking part in this research. It is possible that you may feel it is helpful to answer questions about your experience. There will be resources available on the website which may help you.
If you take part in this study, you may help others in the future. Information from this study may be used in the future to help other people who have had a similar experience.

Is there any way being in this study could be bad for me?

You may feel that answering some of these questions is upsetting. If this happens, you do not have to answer that question if you do not want to. You may skip to the next question or you can exit the survey.

Another risk is that you may worry that others will find out about the HIV PEP, or why you were taking it. None of your identifying information will be included in the survey. Your IP address and email address (if provided) will be stored separately from your survey responses. This is the only personally identifying information collected, but there is a small risk you would voluntarily provide additional personally identifying information through your answers to free text questions. Only people on the research team will know that you are in the research study and will see your information. We cannot promise complete confidentiality.
