Social Support and Fibromyalgia Research

Tuesday 23 October 2007

Victoria UniversityA new research study focusing on fibromyalgia is underway at Victoria University.

The study is being conducted by Jane C. Mulcahy in the University’s School of Biomedical Sciences as part of a Masters Degree in Health Science.

Jane has provided some general information about the study:

“If you have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, we are inviting you to participate in this research study.

All men and women who reside in Australia who are aged between 20-80 years are eligible for this study.

If you agree to participate in this study, you will be provided with a participant information sheet and two questionnaires to complete. It will only take a total of 15 minutes to complete. The two completed questionnaires and participant information sheet are required to be mailed back to the researchers via pre-paid envelope. No physical examinations or interviews will be required. The return of the questionnaires automatically implies consent.

There will be no further contact from the researchers. Participants’ involvement in the study is entirely voluntary and you have the right to discontinue at any time.

Your participation will provide the researchers with important information that may assist health professionals who treat patients with Fibromyalgia.

To obtain the research material or obtain further information about the study please contacts Jane Mulcahy by telephone on (03) 9919 1140 or email jane.mulcahy@vu.edu.au.”
