CAREGIVERS’ VOICES NEEDED!
We are looking for volunteers for a research study. The study aims to explore the needs, concerns, and quality of life of working-age caregivers of stroke survivors. Working-age caregivers’ specific needs and concerns have not been included in the majority of stroke caregiver research. It is important that working-age stroke caregivers have a voice and the ability to share their needs and concerns. The goal of this research is to study how unmet needs and concerns as well as other factors affect the quality of life for working-age caregivers.
First, we ask that you complete a short screening questionnaire to see if you are eligible to participate in the study. The screening will take less than 5 minutes. If you are eligible and you would still like to participate, you will receive a link to a second survey and you will be asked to answer questions about your needs and concerns, caregiver situation, social support, and quality of life. The survey will take about 20-30 minutes to complete. You can complete the screening questionnaire and survey online through the link. You can complete the screening survey at https://redcap.link/9zt852zk
You will receive a $50 Amazon e-gift card as a token of appreciation for your participation in the study. After completing the survey, please provide your email so we know where to send your gift card.
Risks include experiencing emotional distress, boredom, or fatigue as you may have to reflect on past experiences or as you answer a specific survey question. But the study poses no physical, social, or legal risks. There is also a risk of loss of confidentiality. To minimize this risk, we will maintain the confidentiality of your information in accordance with all national and local regulations.
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to share my research study with you. . If you have any questions or comments, please call, text, or email me. I would love to hear from you!
