Your participation in this research will consist of complete this questionnaire divided into seven sections. Each section will invite you to choose the statement that you feel best describes your situation. Simply check the box that best describes your opinion on a scale of 1 to 6. We hope that you complete the entire questionnaire, but, you may choose not to answer any of the questions and to end the survey at any time. The maximum time required to complete the survey should be approximately 15 minutes.
Of course, your answers will be kept anonymous. Your participation in this project is limited, it will never be possible to identify you. Thus, the data from your responses will be kept for further analysis or other research in anonymous form. It should be noted that since no data that can identify you (eg name, address) is collected through the questionnaire, the data obtained from a participant after the researcher receive the completed questionnaire cannot be destroyed, even if you decide to withdraw from the project.
