Are you a support worker or parent/carer of an adult who lives in shared accommodation and is experiencing:
- a health condition associated with pain AND;
- a severe or profound level of intellectual disability as defined by having at least four of the five qualities below:
- absence of speech
- major sensory impairment (vision or hearing)
- severe problems with movement
- dependence on others to meet basic daily needs
- apparent lack of engagement with the environment
If so, Scope invites you to participate in a Pain Awareness Project.
What does it involve?
The project involves learning how to identify and manage pain in people with intellectual disability. Participants will attend a 2.5 hour education session about pain and will trial a pain checklist. Three surveys will also be completed.
Participants will be recruited until August 2017.
Participation is voluntary and anonymous
Backfill will be provided for support worker participation.
Parents/carers will receive a $30 voucher.
If you would like to see a description of the project or have any queries please contact Scope’s Research team on (03) 9843 3000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
