Study for those who support people with an SCI
Participants needed for a study with family, friends and partners that support people with an SCI
You can help researchers understand how to improve life situations among family members, partners, and friends who support someone with a spinal cord injury. This can look like self-care (e.g. exercise) and activities in one’s community or society (e.g. spending time with friends). The results of this study may inform future resources for people that care for someone with a spinal cord injury. You will be asked by researchers at the University of British Columbia to take part in two behavioural support sessions over the phone or via Zoom.
Who is eligible to participate: You may be able to be a part of this study if you:
- Are 18 years or older
- Are someone who assists a family member, partner or friend with an SCI with their activities of daily living and provide them with emotional support
What is involved: You will be asked by researchers at the University of British Columbia to take part in two one-on-one behavioural support sessions over the phone or via Zoom that will be audio recorded. Each session will take approximately 30 minutes. You will also be asked to complete one survey before and two surveys after the sessions. Each survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. You will also be asked to participate in an approximately 30-60-minute audio-recorded interview to understand your perceptions of the sessions.
Your sessions and interviews will be scheduled based on the time that works best for you.
Participants will be provided with $50 for their participation in this study. If you are interested in participating, please click on the following link: https://ubc.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6fWeE6O1jDr8ebz
