Volunteers for a Research Study

Predictors of Perceived Informational Support and Self-Efficacy in Patients at Increased Risk of Sudden Unexpected Cardiac Arrest and their Caregivers

Principle Investigator: Dr. Andrew Krahn

Researchers working with the Hearts in Rhythm Organization (HiRO) are asking for volunteers to participate in survey to help assess how access to services differs across Canada and understand how differences in resource availability affects the self-efficacy and informational support of inherited heart rhythm disorder patients, family members and their caregivers. These findings will assist with ensuring the patient voice is taken into consideration when making recommendations for standardizing heart rhythm disorder care in Canada. This survey can be done online and will take approximately 20 minutes of your time. If interested, you can go to the link below or email

  2. Are a patient, first-degree family member (parent, sibling, child) OR caregiver (spouse, close friend) of someone affected by an inherited heart rhythm condition, unexplained cardiac arrest or sudden cardiac death.
