We need YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY to complete an online survey!

We are assuming that they are less aware of ‘pain-related-stuff’ than you are, and WE NEED THEM to participate in our experiment.  We are interested in how varied strategies for spinal imaging reporting can effect cognitions, and plans to engage in activity.

To make this easy, you can click here to link to the details (and link to the survey) – which you could copy/paste to email…… and then share with friends, family, neighbours, colleagues……

We (Yasmin Medalian, Emma Karran & Lorimer Moseley) would be very, very, grateful indeed!

The text to copy/paste into an email is this:

The Body in Mind Research Group at the University of South Australia are conducting an interesting experiment.  They need as many adults as possible to complete an online survey and have requested that I help out by asking some of my contacts to participate.

The survey relates to back pain, what people think about it, and the impact of different management approaches.

If you can spare 15 minutes (or less) I know that it would be really appreciated – and will be a worthwhile contribution to science!

You can click here to link straight to the survey, or you can read the formally approved advertisement below for extra information:

As part of the Honours program at the University of South Australia School of Health Sciences, we require close to 400 adults to volunteer to take part in an online study.

The study “Low Back Pain Imaging Reporting: Considering Content to Change Cognitions” will be conducted by Honours student Yasmin Medalian and two experienced supervisors (Professor G. Lorimer Moseley & Emma Karran). The University of South Australia’s Human Research Ethics Committee has approved the project.

The purpose of the study is to investigate whether the reporting style of scans has an impact on a person’s thoughts about how safe it is to be active, following an episode of low back pain.

* The study will consist of an online questionnaire. No written responses are required.

* The study will take approximately 15 minutes or less to complete.

* Participants can withdraw from the study at any time.

* There are no foreseen risks associated with this study.

* Any personal information collected and individual responses will remain confidential, unless required by law.

If you are interested in volunteering as a study participant, please click the following link https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CPXSVF6 and complete the online study.

Your assistance will be greatly appreciated and will contribute to the final results of the Honours project.

Many thanks in advance,

Yasmin Medalian
