The Adult Volunteer Pool (AVP) is a service that connects older adults interested in participating in psychology studies with psychology labs at the University of Toronto (St. George Campus) who regularly conduct aging studies. The Adult Volunteer Pool keeps all volunteer information confidential. All volunteer information is amassed in a password-protected database that can only be accessed by the AVP Coordinator. Only researchers affiliated with the University of Toronto Psychology Department, who have had their studies approved by a University of Toronto Ethics Committee, as well as by the Adult Volunteer Pool, and who will be responsible for running the study in some way, will have access to information pertinent to the study being run. This information includes, but is not limited to, your name and contact information, so that a researcher can contact you about an ongoing study.
You are under no obligation to provide any information you do not wish to disclose. However, the more details you provide, the easier it is for us to properly assess your eligibility to participate in our studies. It is especially important to provide up-to-date contact information, so that we can call or e-mail you to participate in our studies.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the AVP Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling us at (416) 978-0905.
