Research Participants (volunteer couples) needed for Migraine Impact study.
Hello, My name is Karen Bacher and I am a PhD student working under the supervision of Dr. Virginia Shipman, Professor, from the Family Studies Program in the College of Education, IFCE Department, at University of New Mexico. The reason that I am contacting you is that we are conducting a study entitled "Migraine headache: A family affair," and are currently seeking volunteer couples to participant in this study. The study seeks to explore the impact of migraine headaches on spouses/partners of patients with migraine headaches. We are seeking married or cohabitating heterosexual couples in which the female experiences chronic migraine and the male is migraine free. Participation in this study involves completing an on-line survey. Both patient and partner complete their own version of the on-line survey at their own individual convenience. Participation in this study would take approximately 45 minutes per person. I would like to assure you that the study has been reviewed and received ethics clearance through the UNM Internal Review Board. I hope that you will share this invitation for participation with your members/patients/ friends/family members with migraine. Couples interested in participating may contact me at email@example.com. I will then reply with a more detailed description of the study, full eligibility criteria, benefits of participation and the link to which participants can access the survey on-line. Thank you so much for your consideration and support. Sincerely, Karen Bacher View Thread
