Clinical Trials

All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs)

Do you or your teens ride ATVs? We would like to invite you to take part in a study: Family Use of All-Terrain Vehicles

Why is this study being done?

We would like to learn more about parents’ and teens’ experiences of riding ATVs. For example, what makes it fun? What do you see as the risks involved? We would like to know how you think we can make riding an ATV safer for families and youth. 

What does the study involve?

During an audio-taped interview with a nurse researcher, we will ask you to share your perspective as a parent who owns and operates an ATV or has a teen who rides an ATV. We hope you will take part in an interview that will take about 30-60 minutes. We will find a time and location that works for you, and is safe and convenient. 

A second research nurse will interview your teen separately at the same time if your teen decides to take part too. Each person interviewed will receive a $20 gift card as a token of appreciation (up to $40 per family).
