Poster for the research recruitment
 

Recruitment Statement:
We are a group of postgraduate healthcare students from St George’s University of London recruiting participants for a research study. We are looking to understand the lived experiences of people with spinal cord injuries after they have completed the acute hospitalisation and early rehabilitation period. We would like to specifically explore what physical activity means to you and how it plays a role in your life. This will help us to better understand the long-term effects of the care that people with Spinal Cord Injury receive and inform our future development as practitioners.

Study Aim:

The aim of this study is to explore the role of physical activity in people living with a spinal cord injury beyond the early inpatient rehabilitation period.
 
Are you eligible?
Participants must be 18 years of age and older, have sustained a spinal cord injury, and must be at least two or more years post-injury.
 
What is involved?
The study involves a 30 minute to one hour interview which will take place over Microsoft Teams with two members of our research team. It will consist of 10-20 questions with the overall aim being to explore how physical activity has played a part in your life since the injury.
 
If you are interested in taking part or have any questions, please register your interest by emailing [email protected] with the subject ‘Spinal Cord Injury Research Study’, and we will respond to you shortly.
 
Please note that this study can only take a maximum of 10 participants. After you register your interest, you will be sent a copy of the participant information sheet and consent form by a member of the team via email. Upon returning the signed and completed forms via email, we will send you a one minute screening questionnaire to collect further information. We will then contact you again to organise a date for the interview at your convenience. Alternatively, we will let you know if we have reached our capacity but appreciate your interest.
