SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCE AND OPINIONS

 

Dear [FIRST_NAME] 

ACNP is pleased to share two new research projects with you on behalf of external organisations.

1.     Deprescribing In Residential Aged Care Research Project

General Practitioners, Accredited Pharmacists & Nurse Practitioners Needed

Researchers at Curtin University are investigating the factors associated with deprescribing potentially inappropriate medications in residents of aged care facilities.  Potentially inappropriate prescribing is associated with numerous poor health outcomes for those who reside in aged care facilities and deprescribing of medicines has a key role in minimising this risk.
In this study, you will be asked to participate in an online focus group discussion with colleagues from the same health profession as yours, to discuss various aspects of deprescribing in this environment. It is expected that the online discussion will be approximately one hour in duration.  Participants will be remunerated with a $50 Coles Group and Myer Gift Card.  If you are interested in participating in this research project, please contact

  • Dr Ya Ping Lee, Lecturer, Curtin Medical School

  • By email at yaping.lee@curtin.edu.au; or

  • By telephone on (08) 9266 1978

The conduct of this research project has been approved by the Curtin University Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) (HRE2021-0193).


2.     Are you a nurse with something to say about contraception and abortion care in general practice?

We invite any practice nurses, and community pharmacists working in general practice to participate in a short 15min survey in the area of long-acting reversible contraception and medical abortion.

Who is running the study?
