Research Study about Peer Support
Hello! My name is Joy McLeod. I am the family
member of an individual who sustained a spinal cord injury in Ontario, Canada,
and a student at Carleton University. I am reaching out to you today to tell
you about the research I am conducting, which was motivated by my lived
experience as a caregiver, as you may find it to be of interest to you.
My supervisor, Dr. Chris Davis, and I have created a study to learn more
about the experience with peer support among individuals
living with spinal cord injury. For example, we are hoping to learn what
aspects of peer relationships people find most (or least) valuable, how these
relationships relate to well-being, and whether any aspects of these
relationships have changed, and how, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Participants will be entered to win 1 of 3 $50 gift
cards. The estimated odds of winning are 1 in 50.
In order to participate, you must:
1) Have sustained a spinal cord injury, 2) receive support from others living with a spinal cord injury (formally or informally), and 3) be at least 18 years of age.
The survey can be completed online by following this anonymous link: https://carletonpsych.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_08N9MRRluqSwsTj
It can also be completed over the phone
with assistance by the lead researcher: [email protected]
This study has received clearance by the Carleton University Research Ethics Board-B (114704) and is being supervised by Dr. Chris Davis ([email protected])
Thank you for your consideration and wishing everyone a wonderful week!
