CLEAR Study Privacy

All the information collected by the CLEAR Study is kept confidential and is stored in accordance with strict privacy protection procedures. Only authorised study staff have access to the data. Names are removed from records and replaced with a unique study ID as soon as possible after collection and before analysis. Participants will not be able to be identified, either directly or indirectly, when the results of the study are reported. Participation in this study is entirely voluntary. Participants may withdraw at any time, even after they have agreed to take part.

Thank you to all the people who have taken part in CLEAR.

Their questionnaire data and blood samples will help us understand risk factors for cancer in NSW.

“Many people think the only way to help research is to give a financial donation, but when it comes to a broad reaching study such as CLEAR, we’re totally reliant on the courage and goodwill of cancer patients in the community.”

Karen CanfelAssociate Professor Karen Canfell

“We have an enormous diversity of lifestyles: we can compare and get meaningful answers about the causes of cancer”
