Hello LCS Community,
I hope everyone is doing well!
Please see below an opportunity to part take in a research study at Monash University. I've posted a description of the project and relevant information on behalf of Debra Mitchell (researcher at Monash University).
Monash University School of Primary and Allied Health is seeking consumers to be involved in our Long COVID Clinic Research - Consumer Advisory Group. We are designing a Long COVID research project and student led clinic and would greatly value input from people who have or have had Long COVID. We are aware that people with Long COVID often experience fatigue and brain fog, and post exertion malaise. By seeking consumer input, we aim to avoid overburdening research participants and those reading the outcomes of the study. Specifically, the project team will ask for feedback on:
Initial screening tools
Education program for students & clinicians
Dissemination to consumers
The role of the consumer is to provide a consumer perspective which is informed by feedback and the experiences and opinions of other consumers as well as their own experience and opinions. We are seeking 6-8 people to be involved in this project. We are looking for people who would be willing to undertake 1 hour of live online training and attend approximate 4 meetings. We will also be asking for feedback on documents.
